Frances Beach, Praia do Frances

(3.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
An expansive beach, with strong waves on one side, and tranquil, reef-protected shallows on the other, Frances Beach caters both to thrill-seekers and those looking for a relaxing bathe. Take to the waves on a surfboard, banana boat or jet ski, or, for a more sedate option, take a tour of the reefs in a glass bottomed boat. The calm pools created by the reefs are also perfect for snorkeling. Plenty of bars, restaurants, and craft stalls congregate around this area, providing everything you need for a day at the beach. The name Frances Beach is said to come from the French smugglers who frequented the beach in colonial times. A visit to Frances Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Praia do Frances family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • Beach ideal for travelling with children because when low tide there are no waves and when it goes up they are not sharp. It is very crowded there are many sellers but are very respectful several carts offering drinks and meals, very good.

  • Very nice beach pale water and white sand, surfboard rentals with good prices. Meets the various taste, a part of the Beach the sea calm and peaceful and great for stand up, another part and waves good for surfing. We did both. The food in the tent has good prices because the meals are very well served a plate of for 4 people. The town has several restaurants, bar, the night market on the street. access to the beach which is bad.

  • The sea was delicious. Warm waters and relatively tranquil waves, nothing that could overthrow the people. Excellent beach to enjoy with family and friends. Crisp piece of Bibi.
