Is lovely, some places you can jump/swim, the color of the water is stunning, kind green mixed with blue, is not cold, but is definitely not warm, but everyone should go there sometime

Lunch in the square in Ferragudo is a must. Take the trouble to walk up the hill towards the church via the narrow cobbled streets. Also, walk along the harbour side past the nets and grilling fish - but don't stop there... More
