We go there all the time! Family loves the place. I sometimes go with the dog in the winter months and it is quiet and good fun! Tide and waves are not dangerous.

An old favourite which hasn’t really changed much over the years. The sardines are fabulous and the fries they serve them with are great too. One portion could do 2 people too. Fab setting on the beach, very relaxed and informal. Well worth a visit....More

it is a very nice beach and for some reason was the least busy. The sand is very fine, the water clean and you can make some very instagramable pictures!

Pintadinho Beach is a brilliant place to swim and sun. However, make sure you pay attention to any youngsters because the ocean can be rough, and it hurts if your body is thrown around in the waves and brushed on the sand.
