  • Beautiful beach with single-color water, with its golden dunes. Sometimes some wind but you don't get to your beauty. Good to practice various sports.

  • Spend at least few hours there . My favourite time is early in the morning when the beach is calm and quiet . I woke my dog there . A long stretch of sandy beach 
  • Want to Surf, windsurf, this is the best beach in Portugal to make these extreme sports. Nice environment and good places to eat.
