Given it's location, this beach was not as crowded as the others. The little shack had great coffee, the owner is delightful, the the beach chairs and umbrella offer a pleasant way to spend the day on the beach!

We love this beach. The rock formations are incredible and there are very few high rise buildings overlooking it. The sand is mostly soft and we enjoyed investigating all the rock pools etc when the tide was out. Two good bar/restaurants near to us so...More

Endless trails to allow you to explore the most impressive coast line you may ever see up close. The ocean & rock formations are simply amazing & a must see.

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

A nice place, pretty wild and quiet. Sorrounded by spectacular rocks it lets you good memories from holiday. During the noon , the ocean floods a part of the beach and cuts the connections to the next beaches. Nice to be here.

This was a wonderful walk: Tres Castelos, Vau to Rocha. Beautiful sandstone formations glow in the late afternoon / early evening sun. The sun is nice too and so were the cliffs.
