    The best beach in Porto Covo according to us. We went back twice as the views are amazing and you can be at ease - not crowded at all. A small lagoon forms when the tide is going up - making it even more fantastic. Place to return.

    We went with Mestre Joaquim Matias (the official tour guide) and it was amazing! So much history and stories of the island. Really knowledgeable and friendly. The island is beautiful and great spot to visit! Highly recommend it.

    It's a really nice beach, small and quiet. Maybe to small, it would fit around 5,6 groups of towels. But is just amazing. The view is breathtaking. Windy though.

    Great. It is a small beach (40 mts wide approx) in a cove. Parking can be challenging after 12am. Relaxed atmosphere..naturism 100%...highly reccomended

    A small and well kept historic center with a few bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. Worth a visit if you're closeby.

    Beautiful beach surrounded by cliffs. When it's low tide you can walk to the two adjacent beaches. Great for kids to play between the rocks with a fishnet.
    When the tide is high the water gets deep quite quickly.

    The beach has a nice bar with good food.

    Beatriz and Ricardo did an outstanding job of transporting our luggage from one hotel to the other during our walk on the Rota Vicentina. They also brought is back from Lagos to Porto Covo. A very reliable company at a very competitieve price.
