Golden sands, colorful rocks, and calm waters are characteristic of Praia Dona Ana, a small beach hidden from roads and development. Nestled amidst cliffs and surrounded by countless grottos and rocky outcroppings, the area is within walking distance of the city center and is accessible by a flight of stairs or by a boat. You can rent a lounge chair and an umbrella at the site, or just spread out your towel. When you're ready for a snack, visit one of the many cafes on the clifftops, which also offer views of the ocean. Look toward the horizon to see if you can spot groups of fishing vessels at work.

Praia Dona Ana Reviews
Worth a visit to see the dramatic setting and the tranquil beach scene. A very attractive beach close to town. more »
Der schöne Strand war vor unserer Haustür. Einfach nur schön. Es war natürlich wenig los im Oktober. more »The beautiful beach was on our doorstep. Just beautiful. There was, of course, little going on in October.
Really nice spot. It’s always going to be busy due to being right in the city but it doesn’t matter the nature makes up for being super busy. Beautiful cold water if that’s what you like!
Very nice beach with nice sand and rocky clifs. Tavern on the beach. Beach chairs are available but have to be booked for a fee every morning in a first come, first serve fashion. On top of the main cliff there is a pool and 2 restaurants. You need a pool access card to use the pool though. Those are for resort tenants only. Nice place to stay.
