  • You walk in about 15 minutes to the beach, on a good path. There also seems to drive a train, but how frequent is not clear ..... It is a beautiful beach with ánker-Ka ', there are hundreds of anchors, as a tribute to the tuna fisheries of the past here. The ' village is now a museum, shops and restaurants. Please note, in december, everything is close. The toilets were open though.

  • Consider some of the best beaches of the Algarve, with all the intention. And own to visit with all companies, since children, couples who want some rest, everyone like it. A great choice!

  • Backed by a cafe that gives attentive service, visitors walk past giant anchors, limited to anchoring the sand from wind movement, to reach a gloriously empty beach that stretches in both directions. ...  more »

  • 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.
