We went to this beach as part of the pirate boat tour from Albufeira marina and it was very quiet and relaxed despite the number of people there. Everyone had their spot and were doing their own thing which was mainly relaxing
We were told to be careful of possible falling rocks from the cliffs, but thankfully we didn't experience any!
Lots of shells on the beach close to the water so a little complicated for walking barefoot, but the water - and beach in general - is very clean.
5 - Amazing Restaurant and service

One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Wonderful Restaurant and bar on site! We stayed at the W Algarve and had free shuttle service to this beach. 2 minute drive.

I came across this beautiful beach accidentally whilst out walking- what a gem! A small, sheltered & very clean, sandy cove, backed by cliffs, with the glistening sea lapping around some rock formations & lifeguards in attendance. Straw parasols & sun beds for hire if needed, plus space either side to bring your own if preferred. I found it just perfect & didn’t want to leave! The restaurant nestled next to the cliffs made my experience even more perfect- the staff were wonderfully friendly…nothing was too much trouble…I was able to choose fresh fish from a selection on ice & it was grilled & served with a tasty salad & potatoes. Prices were very reasonable ( I paid €23 which also included a glass of rosé & bread/ olive oil appetiser) I sat on a lovely, shady veranda overlooking the beach - it was all spotlessly clean & there was always a member of staff making sure diners were attended to.
There were free toilets available for use plus showers!
