  • long stretch of beach surrounded by big dunes, need to cross a river to get there. Surf Paradise and amazing views!  more »
  • Lovely views with good walking trails nearby . You can do a circular walk from and to Carrapateira. Great views of coastline  more »
  • BEWARE OF EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS CURRENTS EVEN RIGHT AT THE BEACH, at least now in spring! We went to this beach last week in sunshine and a good spring breeze. It is scenic and once at the beach feels very wild. But beware that there may be - like then - very very strong rip currents and undertorrents. My husband was in less than lower hip deep to check out the conditions and got out of a major current only with his board. We had to witness that a dad of another family who went in for a short swim was taken out to sea by the currents, and we were all unable to help because the sea was so dangerous. It took emergency services 50 minutes to reach us in the middle of this remote beach and all help came too late.
  • Great place for surf lessons.
