  • Wonderful nice place with good food experience. The opportunity for pleasant hiking on the infinite long beach with special fine sand. Picked with me shells. Nice to be able to sunbathe, then it was put out. Also cozy plantings. Some big waves did that there was swimming when we were there.

  • Long beautiful wide clean and unspoilt beach Take small gauge train across the marsh to beach area (€2) or walk along path following the train track  more »
  • You may access on a small train or walking along a path that allows you to admire the marshes. Beautiful beach of very fine white sand on a turquoise sea, where some planted dunes of anchors. Very magical space. Very recommended

  • Praia extensa e agradável. O comboio turístico é engraçado, mas o percurso a pé também é muito bom para observar a paisagem envolvente.
  • Didn't spend much time here but the landscape is amazing! The shrubbery is very wild and is actually untouched, it smells amazing walking through the marshy greenlands down to the beach. Unlike some beaches it is completely clean, no bottles or rubbish at all, though I waa only on one section of the beach. Its location is a little out of the way and I only visited by chance but if you are in this region its a must see.
  • One of my favorite beaches. Enjoy an experience of this beautiful and quiet beach. You have to cross a narrow bridge to reach a kind of stop of a tourist train that will take you to the beach. If you prefer to opt for non-payment can make the journey on foot, will take you about 10/15 minutes, depends on that you are charged. I recommend the trip by train, at least for the first leg, because it is worth. When you arrive you are with some areas of small shops, restaurants and an area of public baths which have up to showers. The spectacular beach. Clean, with big waves and warm water. Nothing jam-packed with people. Moreover, if you want to have the beach for you, just leave a little bit more than the entrance and ready.
