  • Superb sandy beach for children. The whole area is clean and tidy and good for walking and cycling. Lots of hotels but not over commercialsed. Best for families with young children.
  • Amazing beach, like usual in Portugal. Although there are too many buildings and I prefer other beaches like Praia Verde
  • Beach beach beach plenty of room for granny aswell. Kid friendly - quiet during spring picks up from june onwards August is packed out they have quirky street sellers and performers in the evening - locals are friendly ..very much a Portuguese resort for the Portuguese and thats great..no nonsense.
  • Praia de Monte Gordo is a wonderful place with beautiful beaches to visit in the South of Portugal. You will love to be there.
  • Great beach - but don’t look behind you
