  • Excellent beach but a good km to get there from the parking lot in the middle of August, discourages. Moreover, good beach and enough space to be quiet even in the middle of August.

  • Beautiful beach near Albufeira. Clean, lot's of space. It's along steep rocks. The restaurant is good and affordable.
  • Off the beaten path. Best unspoiled beach around Albufeira. Very clean water. Excellent snorkeling on West side. Plan your visit for low tide. Wear water shoes for protection against shells.
  • Best beach ever! Quiet and the restaurant is good value for money. Well worth the visit.
  • An absolutely lovely little beach with very interesting flora around the surrounding cliff top walks.. Lots of rabbit burrows so I guess hence the name!
  • a gem of a beach. perfect!
