nice beach especially if you are photo-lover. Hard to access though, so make sure you plan ahead and have snickers for the down-ride. Water again, is very cold to swim even during summer and it can get really windy as well.

Get there early and you'll have it almost to yourself. It's a pretty little beach with nice rock formations. We saw some guys looking for oysters, maybe and a couple of tenters there, but it was peaceful and pretty.

This spot had such an amazing view. It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. It's a hike down to the actual beach but the view from the top of the cliffs is still spectacular

It's about half an hour by foot from Cabo da Roca. 15 minutes of walking on the top of the cliffs and then 15 minutes steep decline to the beach. And it is so worth it!! It looks unreal, the most beautiful beach I've ever...More
