We spent a day at that beach and rented sunbeds and a umbrella (10 € for the day). This is an easy-access beach. Good waves, clean water and sand. Good for families (river) too. Beutiful view. Definitely a great vacation spot.

A beautiful and deservedly busy beach. Its definitely worth a walk along the fisherman's trail, the views from the cliff tops are stunning.

sorry, but I am not aware of there being any beach chairs for hire. We visited Odeceixe beach from about 20 km away and don't know of any local hotels.
