  • Very good location. It can be accessed by walking, which will be about 10 minutes or by train, which in low season is not worth waiting for as it takes quite a while. Apart from being on a beautiful beach, you can see a cemetery of Anchors where those who are passionate about photography can take some beautiful catches. A place that you have to visit if you are in the Algarve.

  • Huge beach reached on walking or on a little train with an unforgettable charm for children. Clean, with good services and km of white sand.

  • Easy to park in the morning, arrived around 10am and there was PLENTY of space for cars. We caught the 10 minute train to the beach, sweet little slow train for about 3euro return. The beach is very long so there are no large crowds once you get onto the sand. The sea was warm, clear water, just windy the day we went. Lovely 5 hours of sun bathing, restaurant and shops at the beach, toilets too. All in all very good and a LOT quieter than other tourist beaches.
  • Great beach, accessible by train or by foot. It is not far to walk. Umbrella is a good idea since there is no shade. Water is warm and waves are not dangerous. In tbe3 evening when there is no wind it gets infested by like a million mosquitoes...
