this beach is probably one of the most beautiful natural beaches in the world! Absolutely visit, not necessarily a bathing beach, but good to walk!

Large sandy beach bordered by large cliffs. Surf paradise. Nice bar where you can rent beach sunbathing or sport equipment

This is an enormous expanse of sand for southern European standards. The main attraction is surfing, but swimming and sunbathing are also an option especially in high tides when the channel gets filled with water. Some nice cliff walks too. And wonderful views.

Great beach for surfing. Very long and hard access, unsuitable beach for elderly or disable people. There is a bar on the beach.

Just amazing. The cliffs of this beach just made one of greatest view i ever had. The ocean is so wild, the air is clean and water is refreshing to bath in. Portuguese nature at is best.

Yes dogs are allowed but you should try to walk away from the beginning of the beach where everyone normally stays. The beach is extensive with plenty of space for you to walk the dog and sit and sunbathe away from everyone... More
