This is one of the most photographed beaches in Portugal. It's for the rock formations, which rise out of the water and just out from the dramatic cliffs forming the kinds of shapes that are easy for fishermen to turn into something more magical. The sandy coves at the base of the cliffs are lovely, if a steep challenge to get to, but there are some grottoes more easily reached than others. One way to see this beach is just to see it from above along the mountain goat friendly cliff top tracks, camera in hand, but the water is clean and clear and inviting so scramble down if you can or get one of the fishermen to ship you round.
