  • It's a beautiful beach but unfortunately to get there you will need to walk about 10-25 minutes through a rocky path so I don't recommend to bring your flip-flops
  • Beautiful beach. Around 10 minute walk to get there.
  • Make sure to have plenty of water and food with you before heading down, as you need to climb for around 40 minutes to get to the beach from the parking area. Totally worth it but keep in mind it's really hard to get down.
  • Very nice. Little bit difficult to reach, but water colors are incredibile
  • It's a peace of paradise 1 hour from the capital Lisbon... It has no easy access, you will walk about 20 minutes to get to the beach, in a hard trail... But in the end it was worth it!
