  • This beach is about a 20 minute walk from Carvoeiro along the road. Beautiful clean sand and it’s great to watch the rollers coming in but watch out as they can take you by surprise and you could end....  more »
  • You can easily walk to this beach along the coastal path from Carvoeiro or Rocha Brava, it's not too far. It's also accessible by car, and there's a bus stop just up the hill so you'd think it would.....  more »
  • Clear water & sandy beach, with activities if you want to, very clean & not to crowded.This beach is fantastic. Beautiful beach surrounded by high cliffs.  more »

  • Small beach steep drop off into break point. Small children need 1 to 1 support any where near the water as the pull back is strong. Great place for confident swimmers. Sun bathers watch out large waves do hit the cliff wall covering most of the beach!
  • Really nice beach. Go early to be able to park if driving. Easy access to the beach via good steps and walkway. There is a nice cafe with lower seating over looking the beach. The beach is fairly large and can certainly cope with peak times without appearing crowded. A few activities on offer as well kayaks, cove boats etc. Certainly one of the beaches you should visit if in the area.
  • Lovely beach! It has 2 sides, easy to access with well built stairs. There's a restaurant & bar on site, restrooms as well. Beautiful little caves to explore as long as it's not high tide.
  • Lovely beach. My son fainted in the heat and the life guards and staff of the local boat tour company were superb. Thank you Jack is fine. Just a lovely place.
  • Small enclosed beach, good for a swim, sunbathing & boat trips around the coast & local caves. The surrounding high coastline & rocky caves are pretty but not for hands on exploring due to rock fall danger. Small cafe/bar & good restaurants locally (within 15-20 minute walk) busy in the high season but still not beyond full. Brisk 15 minute walk to Carvoiero centre. Medium- strong tidal cove for competent or supervised swimmers, check tides before going
