Took a walk on this beach early in the morning. Very pretty views if you have your camera. Lots of shells on the beach if a shell collector. There are sun beds for rent as well as a small location to buy drinks.

Walked from the hotel to this beach, well worth the walk. Sunbeds and little cafe for refreshments. Stunning views.

Nice small beach close by albufeira. Went there by scooter. After parking it's a small walk, but worth the effort. During my visit it was quit with visitors. There was enough place to hang out and relax. Good place to swing and do beach activities.

The beach looks great, like many in Algarve with these beautiful rocks. But the drop as you walk in the water is too big for most children, spoiling the fun of seeing them roam a bit more freely.
