  • we went to Monte Gordo in November. The beach was very clean, there were a few places where sunbeds were available and some beach restaurants were still open. plenty of space for people to walk or rel...  more »
  • Abit chilly in November but looks like a great beach for summer sun.... Lots of shops around for the habitual shopper... And the area has lots of bars and restaurants too! 
  • It's one of the best beaches in Portugal. The beach has a beach a lot. Even at high tide the extension that can go in the sea is extensive, which allows you to not walk on top of each other, so when's the tides seem to walk 1 km empty and we continue to walk. Very good for those who have small children. And the sand is Superfine. Is the beach in Portugal that has the best temperature of seawater. Empty tide can catch clams, the best tidbit in this area.

  • Huge sand beach, flat ocean, very good to families with childrens
  • Pretty nice beach. Gets crowded but not too much
  • Swimming and staying under the for hours. Monte Gordo was our option. The water in this beach is the warmest in Portugal. The beach, though generally crowded is large enough for the thousands that use it. However there's not much to see and do, locally, but is possible to make a few short trips to some interesting points. Faro is less than one hour distant, and Seville less than two hours. Visit. ****
  • The beach was great
  • A very vibrant beach
