  • Beautiful little beach set in a cove. The beach was very clean and has a little cafe, which is ideal for snacks and drinks throughout the day. As it's so small it wasn't very crowded at all.  more »
  • Yet again a beautiful small beach, a gem on the Algarve coast. Provided a small walk to get on the beach. Cosy, beautiful rocks and a tea-room.

  • 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!
