We went there twice early morning and saw the dolphins. They really swim close to the shore among the bathers and they get quite close! One swam just a few meters from me. It is an unexplainable feeling to see these beautiful and smart animals in their habitat and so close!! It is truly worth the visit. Just be sure... More

Whenever you go there, there's no doubt you'll see dolphins! The landscape alone is breathtaking... There are lots of boat trips to see the dolphins close which are worth it. Bear in mind that you must keep track of the tide if you wish to spend time at the beach there - you can only reach it by walking from... More

We love this place. As you have to walk a quarter of an hour and there is no direct access to the beach, it is not very crowded. Watch out: only accessible between the high tide peaks. There are some barracas which offer food and drinks, sunshade and chairs. Enjoy the waves and the dolphins.
