Compared to other beaches in the neighbourhood this one is quiet. The restaurant is closed on Wednesdays, and there is nothing else to have a drink or eat some food, so take this into consideration.

Vast beach..... (depends on tide - beware the beach shrinks drastically as the tide comes in fast). Slightly off beaten track. You need a car to reach it and the parking is hectic. Arrive late and you have no hope. Everyone parks everywhere and vehicles...More

It is a great beach for surfing and for long walks. It's never too crowded. It has lower temperatures (in water and air) than other parts of the Algarve.
