This is one of many beautiful beaches along this stretch of the Alentejo coastline. Access and parking have been much improved over the last two years, although it can only be reached by a track. Walkways and observation points and platforms have been added and...More

This beach is great but it has very bad access by car! The road cannot be done properly because the beach is on a protected area! Anyway, the beach is great and has a lot of parking places!

The water is cold. If not that it will be the perfect place. Nice sand and a very calm place to relax.

This beach is really awesome. Spacious and with relative few people. Suspect it is more crowded in August, though. Nice panorama from above when you arrive.

If you walk north you'll find the nude beach (in the second cove). It's very peaceful and relaxing. The only downside is the dirt track getting to the beach as it's bumpy on your car.

Das melhores na zona e a nivel nacional. One of the best in the country. Good for surf, walk or simply rest. Isolated from restaurants and bars but nice acessibilities.
