Lovely clean safe beach. Spent morning swimming and snorkeling the afternoon fishing from rocks. Also has added advantage of having an amazing restaurant!

Great beach which is easily accessible by car from Raposeira. Never exceptionally busy and the sand is really clean. Can get windy at times though!!
