Best sunrises and sunets! Really worth it to get up early ( around 6:30 depending probably on the month) and you will see the prettiest colors. Go visit emocean if you have time
4 - A very pleasant walk

At this time of year (February) few, except visiting Scandinavians and kite surfers in wetsuits venture into the sea, and it is mostly those taking exercise on land that frequent the beach. Walkers, joggers and even beach volleyball players are out, and in the winter months, dog owners take advantage of a tolerance to let their pets run free, on 4 km of beautiful sand.
In winter, not all the beach bars and restaurants are open regularly, so check if you plan to eat. As in summer the beach is quieter the further you go east from town, but right in the middle of the beach, at around the 2 km point, a pair of adjacent bars, Bar Quim and Por do Sol are usually open by 10 am all year.
The beach is gently ic hj SAsffilc onhshelving and safe, and not generally affected by excessively large waves except during and after storms. The safest family beach in the area. Sadly the first photo in those shown is definitely not of Meia Praia which has no cliffs.

Superb beach which - surprisingly - even in August is not too busy.
Probably 4 km towards Alvor so a really good walk.
Very clean with several lifeguards along the stretch.
