  • The path to the beach was as good as the beach was washed away, and therefore difficult to reach.

  • This was one of our favourite beaches this was a ten minute walk from our hotel . As it was winter there was nothing open and we had the beach to ourselves. 
  • We have several days to the swim and sunbathe spent. Really a very nice and good beach.

  • 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!
