This beautiful, beach is accessed by a dirt road leading to a long board walk over the dunes to the beach. There are no facilities or places for food or drink. Those 3 factors keep this beach fairly quiet. The beach stretches east to Albufeira and west to Armacão de Pera. Walk on the beach or the newly completed boardwalk that follows mostly north of the dunes. Ample parking. No overnight parking allowed.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. The surf varies from place to place, but it is not very rough anywhere. Wind was strong, but manageable. The landscape surrounding is breathtaking, with lots of bird activity. We will be going back, I'm sure.
5 - Huge beach. Look at the flamingos.

As you drive into the beach from Armação you pass the old towers and windmills. Often there is a shepherd with a large flock of sheep. Walking paths all through this area. The road switches to san and is vey bumpy. Turn to the east and the marsh and watch the birds. There is a large flock of flamingos here. Park at the end by the boardwalk. Walking to the east gets you closer to the marsh. Straight ahead takes you to the beach. Although the boardwalk is long it is a much easier walk than many of the other beaches.
