Remote and quiet beach with breathtaking views! however you should make an effort to get there, since the pathway is not very comfortable. Nevertheless it's worth getting there!

This beach doesn't offer stairs down to the beach so you have to climb down, but it's so worth it. The beach is preserved incredibly well and the water is lush!

Praia do Canavial is a l-o-n-g way down from the cliff top, but dazzling none the less! I didn't venture down to the beach itself, as I was too busy trying to stay vertical at the top!

An amazing small, golden sand beach with huge steep cliffs and rolling waves. Not very crowded as most wont make the effort but it is worth it
