Visited early one evening to watch the sunset. It was a fabulous ambience to sit within the rocks. The staff were friendly even though we only had a drink. The food looked good so we will return. Not to be missed.. we will be back.

Today we walked along this beautiful stretch of coastline the porous cliffs are breathtaking with lots of nooks and crannies you can walk through. We just had our normal trainers on so no specialist footwear is required.

Fantastically accessible caves and rock structures, great to look at with children (or without!) spent a good hour and a half exploring then head to the natural swimming pool near bar boneca for a swim, a really lovely experience all in all.

Lunch in the square in Ferragudo is a must. Take the trouble to walk up the hill towards the church via the narrow cobbled streets. Also, walk along the harbour side past the nets and grilling fish - but don't stop there... More
