Praia do Vale dos Homens is a beach within the Municipality of Aljezur, in the Algarve, Portugal. The beach is on the western Seaboard in the north west of the Algarve.

This secluded beach can be difficult to reach as visitors to the beach must negotiate a flight of 285 wooden steps down to the beach from the cliff above (where the car park is located). The surrounding countryside is made up of large areas of farmland and pine forests. The beach is popular for sports such as Kite surfing, Windsurfing, and bodyboard surfing. The sea here is designate with a yellow flag is considered too dangerous for swimming as there are potentially hazardous rock formations. Natural pools formed in the rocks near the waterline (in low tide) are popular among visitors as the water is slightly warmer and somewhat shielded from wave action. On the sidewalls of these pools numerous sea creatures can be seen.In the summer of 2015 the walkable extension of the beach was greatly increased due to natural sediment transport allowing access to the north part, which in previous years was accessible only in low tide and required climbing rock features.

  • A beach that does not compensate for the path soon and bad floor that we have to go through there . Without a beach support... with a sand with lots of Rock I don't think I'll ever visit again

  • It's a spectacular beach, if you have to go down and then climb 285 steps. I seem to remember that it has no lifeguard service or the typical beach bar, so you have to be supplied with water etc...

  • Amazing wild beach in the Algarve. Absolutely astonishing and calm place.
  • Beautiful beach, but too wild to go inside.
