  • The town is lovely but the beach is small. The day we were there the waves were too rough with lots of seaweed. We went to Praia Angrinha (first two photos) instead, Ferraguda. Very quiet, easy...

  • If you’re staying in the city and needing an escape then this beach is pretty good. Get the train from Cais de Sodre, takes about 25-30 mins then a 10-25 mins walk. The beach is pretty long and there....  more

  • The beach is very nice and clean . There a very broad and large sand area where one can chill. There are also some restaurants and beach parasol for rent but the big minus for my taste is that there are not enough WC and shower facilities like in Cascais for example (just a few train stations (15 mins) from there). You have to stand in a long line in order to shower and I could not find a place to change or free WC as mentioned above. Therefore I prefer to go to Cascais next time. 🤷
  • This is our favorite beach ⛱️ ! It's a great place to walk early morning / late evening. There are places to have drinks and clean bathrooms! The beach always have some form of activities ( volleyball, football, tennis) and people are always friendly! The beach have several ramps and my boyfriend with a wheelchair ♿️ can come with me to the sand! And we love it! We are from England and it's 100% better at carcavelos than UK beaches. Wish sometimes that the ramp could stretch a bit closer to the water, but that's something minimal compare to how amazing accessibility 👨‍🦽 it is for people with minimum ability. We very happy for who ever made this great work. We would love to find out more and make Portugal more accessible 🤩 We come down to this beach almost every other day for 1 months now.
