    We are a month with the camping van and toddler in Portugal... this place is wild camping value at least one night. From the upper parking lot, you look closely at the inlet to the Atlantic Ocean. Simply beautiful. The parking lot is always crowded and to Park close to eng. At night you should dress warmly and with his drink before the van use and enjoy.

    What a letdown! After braving foul local patchwork "roads" (no EU funds spent here?) and the neverending caravans of slow-moving cars heading for this lovely beach, we found that it was impossible to ...  more »

    Easy parking. Huge beach, although there was so many people was definitely not crowded. You can swim in the ocean is salt water in the fresh water of the river. Very nice to take a little walk after the cliff to the North.

  • 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.
