Praia da Marinha, Caramujeira

#4 of 278 in Beaches in Portugal
Bring your snorkeling gear for an underwater adventure at Praia da Marinha, noted for its calm waters and rocky outcrops. The clear waters lapping this beach offer you a chance to explore a diverse marine environment populated by sea anemones, shrimp, and colorful fish. One of the most photographed spots in Portugal, the beach hugs orange-colored limestone cliffs that are largely responsible for keeping this stretch of the coastline free of big tourist crowds. Once you get tired of your secluded beach lair, head out to sea on a guided boat trip, or pack a picnic lunch and explore the nearby caves and rock pools.

  • Crystal clear waters small Cove. Out of season the top if not too crowded no place and there are signs danger of rockslide that worries strongly. It is advisable not to stand next to the rocks but it surrounds the Cove.
