Praia da Marinha, Caramujeira

#5 of 269 in Beaches in Portugal
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Bring your snorkeling gear for an underwater adventure at Praia da Marinha, noted for its calm waters and rocky outcrops. The clear waters lapping this beach offer you a chance to explore a diverse marine environment populated by sea anemones, shrimp, and colorful fish. One of the most photographed spots in Portugal, the beach hugs orange-colored limestone cliffs that are largely responsible for keeping this stretch of the coastline free of big tourist crowds. Once you get tired of your secluded beach lair, head out to sea on a guided boat trip, or pack a picnic lunch and explore the nearby caves and rock pools. Make Praia da Marinha a centerpiece of your Caramujeira vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Caramujeira tour planner.

  • Beautiful spot. Fantastic for a beach / cliff walk! Check it out!
  • Best
  • Nice spot to relax. Take also the time to wander around the too of the cliffs, this is where you can enjoy the best view
  • Really nice beach, it inspired me to create a game where you have to bounce a small ball off a beach ball and catch it. You can even play by yourself if you have no friends! The only negative part is the sea was quite rocky any I ended up cutting myself.
  • Superb beach with absolutely stunning views. Heavily visited. Best to come on working day in low season.
