  • We will get to a dusty road information, scarce, but eventually this beach is worth the short trip (25 minute drive, halfway between Vilamoura and Albufeira). It's an extreme offshoot of the beautiful Praia da Falesia: here the red rocks bordering the beach are lower and less red, but the beach is always great, there is less crowded and you can leave your car in a large car park at the roadside, at low cost. You can rent sunshades or awnings, with 2 beds (about 12 euros per half-day, full-day 20).

  • Very clean and deserted beach. 10€ for 2 beds with an umbrella. The last part of the road is a dusty, but good driveable, dirt road.
  • Beautiful beach. Nice size of sand area and very near the city to walk to. The only problem is the summer time and all the people.
  • Really nice beach. Was completely deserted! The only issue is the last few kms is a dirt road. But kind of adds to the charm!
  • Lovely beach, I proposed here so I'm fairly fond of it!
  • Lovely Beach! Near Vilamoura.
