very nice beach but could not see expected effect. Great place for a walk on the beach. Not too far from Trancoso but roads are not good.

20km south of Trancoso, you can get there by car or (if you like a bit more adventure) by motorized bikes, fantastic beaches (Espelho, Amores and Outeiro) to walk around and to sip on caipi's until sunset.
