  • This beach is quite wide, with waves very straight but with little strength. The ideal is to go at the time of the sunset, because one is of the few in the Algarve, where the sun sets over the sea and the views are spectacular, very intense colors. Totally recommended.

  • Fairly open to the ideal wind Beach for the practice of surfing. There are quite a few chiringuitos-restaurantes and surf schools

  • Very quiet in winter but still lovely. Long stretch of sandy beach would be good for children , you can walk along to Salgaldos . Cafe on the beach still open.
