  • I went by mistake to that beach, I wanted to go to the of beside Falésia and finish there. There is a parking in the Praia da rocha to this great and free at the end all the way, and seemed ideal for the tranquility without agglomeration and the great passion fruit bolinas.

  • Come annually to praia de Vilamoura since 2001 accompanied by extended family and I've always felt the lack of a simple and enjoyable access to go to the beach on foot or by bike, the shade, without the need to resort to the car. It is a pity that a venture such as Vilamoura, thinking there's no root so long, there is no pedestrian routes and cycle lanes with shade trees, for access to the beach. Some will say that today it is possible to reach the beach on foot or by bike from any point of Vilamoura. Yes, but not in a nice way but by narrow sidewalks along the roads and in the Sun. Vilamoura would promote healthy living habits if create avenues of access to the beach with plant cover for pedestrians and bicycles around could move around freely. Combating sedentary life would be much simpler if the creators of Vilamoura had more vision ... There is now parking lots ... paid.

  • Do Rocha Baixinha beach that my life would be more discolored without back every year! Excellent sands, Mr. Rui (dealer) a person is exceptionally located, Mr. Paulo the Berlin show. Every year in August there and I hope always repeat. It feels good to have roots in another location that is not the area where we were born and live, and for me this is where I find these roots.
