The view from the sea is amazing. We took a boat trip and did all the caves and on the way we were introduced to the church and its history.

We enjoyed a lot this beach during our trip to Algarve, It is quieter and smaller than other beach. Important to know: you need to go down some steps before reaching it.

Lovely little beach with cafe. Only thing that let it down when we went were the loos which were dirty .
