The perfect beach. Beautiful sand, not too crowded in September, pristinely clean. Also, the Agapito bar just up the stairs serves excellent drinks, snacks and coffee. There's also a precious little naturist beach located a minutes walk away.

a bit dangerous in the summer becuase of the crowd and the rip currents on both sides there is not much room for beginers if you want to respect the signs

The Whole Coastline, just beautiful. Its a must visit. If you love the ocean and the rough coastline this is for you. You have to experience to feel it.

This beach is beautiful as are most of them in Portugal. What sets this beach apart is that on one side it is more of a bay with no waves so if you have young kids or are not a great swimmer then this is...More

The view from the top is absolutely gorgeous. I love the fact that the river and the ocean meets in certain part of the beach. You can bath in both actually. Good for surfers , good waves.

If you come for the beach alone, you perhaps get disappointed. But the landscape is stunning and you can make nice walks in the valley and on the rock above the cliffs.

A sandy beach between the sea and a river mouth. Blue flag with lifeguards. You can pretty much forget about swimming in the sea because of the surfers. You can swim in the estuary but BEWARE of the current when the tide is coming in....More

We spent a day at that beach and rented sunbeds and a umbrella (10 € for the day). This is an easy-access beach. Good waves, clean water and sand. Good for families (river) too. Beutiful view. Definitely a great vacation spot.

The Odeceixe beach is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal. A huge sand area at the mouth of the Ribeira de seixe, you have the choice between the ocean and a more peaceful river (although stream is here also quite strong)…. Really...More

sorry, but I am not aware of there being any beach chairs for hire. We visited Odeceixe beach from about 20 km away and don't know of any local hotels.
