  • with several stacks in the water, some with openings at the top. A small beach but sandy and great views from the top.

  • Tiny beach with clear water and great views. The bar makes a really nice sangria. At high tide, it's even tinier😁 Nice for snorkeling. 2 chairs and a parsol is 12 euros. There are no rental...

  • Beautiful rock formations, there are plenty of fish and other sea creatures, a nice place for snorkeling.
  • Praia dos Arrifes is a small exciting and cozy beach. There are a toilet facilities, lifeguard and a cozy cafe on site. There is free parking close by, almost all the way down to the beach. The beach is protected by 3 large rock formations which make the beach different from the other beaches in the area. I would recommend bringing your diving mask as this place is exciting to dive at. It is also possible to swim through the rock formations, however this is a bit dangerous, so do it only if you are a good swimmer. We would definitely recommend you to visit this beach. 👍😎🇩🇰
