  • This was my first experience of the Portuguese west-facing Atlantic coast, and it totally blew me away. A vast expanse of sand, good access (not sure where some get the idea it is not suitable for the...  more »
  • It has a beautiful beach with a small river in front of the sea long. Has unfortunately no toilets there.

  • This is one of the most hospitable and welcoming beaches you can visit, but worth it! Known to be frequented by surfer and hippies, you will understand very why: there is a lot of wind, the sea is not just docile and the sand dunes which protect guarantee quiet and privacy. Many people stop on the small river that crosses the beach, much warmer ocean swimming a little farther. I would recommend though to arrive and drive past the dunes ... the scenery is wonderful! You feel like you're in the desert! Is a unique landscape. The only bar in mind, on stilts, offreottimi lunches and snacks, as well as smoothies and cocktails. All highly recommended ... bring a sweater though!

  • Beautiful beach with also a beautiful river flow. Beware the lateral strong currents at seaside . Do not swim most of the time at sea. Lots of caravans here (could become a problem)
  • Paradise beach. With warm calm waters in a clean river and huge waves of the ocean. And stunning views from the top of the cliffs. Highly recommend.
  • It's beautiful, but at this time of year (March) the river between the road and the beach is 3 ft deep and running fast, so definitely unsafe to wade across. I didn't see anyone at all on the beach, nor a bridge over the river to get there. Probably in the summer the river is only a trickle so no problem.
  • Nice beach where the river meets the coast. A lot of families with small children hang out by the river. Swimming wasn't allowed in the beach the day we went through surfing / body boarding was ok. Depending on where you park you might have to cross the river and navigate the sand dunes to get to the beach.
  • It's pretty wild beach with amazing dunes!
