Very nice beach but then again all beaches in Portugal seem to be top notch. Lots of shells and other wild life to find and see. Be careful though! Plenty of room on the beach in March as well but still was a really nice day. Water a little chilly though but the young ones don't care.

If you like to take long walks along the beach and to play in the water for a long period of time and at the same time having enough space to play some tennis our soccer, this is the best place.
Sometimes the water can be a little freezing but most of the times the temperatures are really nice.
Because the beach stay in a condo, it's a quiet place to spend your time and besides the houses to rent, there's also a nice hotel where you can stay or just go to have a drink.

You have to give it to the Portuguese, they certainly know how to look after their beaches, praia Verde was a perfect beach to walk our dogs in the mornings and stop for coffee afterwards, the stretch of beach goes on and on and is beautiful although BEWARE of the huge jellyfish that were washed on the beach they could be really dangerous.

The beach is magnificent and runs from Monte Gordo in the East to Tavira in the west. Good safe swimming most of the time. Excellant restaurants, we dined at "Restaurante Penzinhos na Areia, right next to the beach at Praia Verde. You need to reserve if you want one of the best tables, but ours was O.K. at the side we could still see the sea and feel the lovely sea breezes. We had cockles and a large sole betwen two of us. Another night we went to Restaurante Infante Panoramico on the cliff with fantastic views. Now under the management of "Infante" restaurante on the N25. Excellant! We had the sea food platter, which was incredible, a real feast.
We did a trip to Spain for lunch, sounds a bit grand, but there is a little ferry from Villa Real de Santo Antonio to Ayamonte. Free parking behind the terminal and a 15 minute "Chug chug" across to Spain, about €2. We walked 100m. or so into the town square and had a very pleasant lunch at Tasca la Puerta, we sat outside but the inside is well worth a visit, lookout for the slope to the toilets it nearly caught me out.
Back on the ferry and back to Altura, a pleasant change from frying in the Sun!!
