Went down here a few times to take sunset pictures on the beach. We were staying in an airbnb just 5 minute walk and truly loved this area.

A must visit if you are in Portimao, just follow the beach down from Portimao and you will come to the very picturesque setting. Beds are 5/7 euros a day at this time in the season. Good value and great for just enjoying the sun

This beach near Praia de Rocha is very different to the main beach. It’s got loads of character and is a typical Algarve beach with Rocks and caves to explore
