Lovely beach

Lovely beach when tide is out - very similar to Cornwall's north coast but about ten degrees warmer.

This is not the summer season, so we expected to see few people on the beach. We actually had the beach to ourselves. We enjoyed the sound of the waves rolling in and crashing on the rocks on the side of this wonderful beach (so far our favourite Algarvan beach). We also had no problems finding a parking spot (again,... More

We were visiting all the beaches and this one is perhaps one of my favorite. Not many people around, the river bed can be seen emptying itself into the sea. The lovely rock formation and a very large beach...all for us to enjoy in peace and serenity.

For me it is simply the best beach in Portugal. You can choose between the sea side or the river side if you have small kids. Very nice spot for surfers.

Very pretty beach with a wonderful cliff top walk with beautiful views. A little bracing in January, but certainly warmer than England! We were advised to stick very carefully to the path due to cliff erosion, made worse by the recent torrential rain. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

We walked to the beach from Odeceixe on a sunny December day. Nice walk, amazing beach. We crossed the river somewhere along the beach and walked back on the north side. Great half-day trip;-)

We have been to the Algarve quite a few times now and usually venture somewhere new each time . First time we ventured north of Aljezur and first beach we found! Not disappointed - almost deserted and wonderful views of the Atlantic massive waves

Very nice beach. Wild sea with big waves and cold but nice. Nice walks on the sunset. We booked our transfers with faroairporttransfersalgarve.com from Faro airport

Walking along the cliffs here reminds me of Cornwall for drama, the big difference being that the cliffs here are mostly slate, so dark gray/black.
