  • The drive out to Odeceixe is gorgeous. We didn't go to the beach, but walked along the cliffs that were above it. There are lots of trails and we highly recommend visiting them and spending some time ...  more »

  • One of the absolute best beaches I've ever been to. You can rent wakeboards, surfboards and we suits to have an amazing time in the great. The small river surrounding the beach is perfect for when the ocean gets too wild :)
  • Nice with Small Kids coz of Low Waves. There is Shadow from cliffs.
  • My favourite beach in Portugal, the place is really beautiful, you can go explore a bit in the rocks (if you cross the river) or just stay at the beach, or the river part if you have smaller children it is less dangerous. Donwside is parking in the summertime (although it does have many more places to park since they renewed it some years back) and if you have to carry a lot of stuff it will be easy going downhill in the morning but coming back up is a really good workout. If you avoid July and August it is normally a peaceful place. Warning: Don't expect the water to be warm and if you cross the river think about the tides because it can be dangerous to cross in high tide, specially if you have stuff that needs to be dry :)
  • Big beach with good facilities. Fair amount of bars and restaurants around. The parking is lacking, but there is space for roadside parking. One distinctive feature is the presence of both a river and sea beach.
  • simply among the most beautiful nature places ever seen.
