Walking along the beach from Alvor, we thought we had come to the end. We decided to explore the cliffs and caves and after we clambered over a few rocks we discovered the most amazing sandy cove with rugged cliffs and caves. Each time we...More

Had a great morning walking around this beautiful beach and all the caves on the beach. Great little restaurant hidden in the rocks there too. Looks very tidal there, so be careful not to get caught out.

Get yourself along to this beach. You will not be disappointed. Go exploring through the caves and past the rocks. Waves up close on your feet with soft sand to walk on.

Gorgeous beach! My favorite! It is sandy and intimate beach. Beware to come early before the rising water.
