This place is fantastic for both families with older children and also for younger children. If you are a little more adventurous, the cliff jumping is brilliant and even my 9 year old loved it. For those who love to snorkel, there is a little...More

We have stayed here numerous times and have never been disappointed . Book a table for lunchtime snacks . Or better still enjoy an evening meal at the Resteraunt . Fantastic views of the bay and some unbelievable sunsets

A great piece of Mother Nature’s work of art. The hike down is a little tricky with little children but doable. The views on the cliffs and in the canyon are breathtaking. We took the “boardwalk” to get there.

Yes Ferraguda is worth a visit. There a regular water taxi from there to Portsmouth. Just 10 minutes travel but we'll worth it. Benajil is also close by with a huge cave you can explore
