  • 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
