One of my favourite spots in the Algarve - Who in the world would rate this beach 2 stars?
In my opinion this is one of the best beaches on the south coast of the Algarve.
Because of the flat smooth rock slab on the seabed, the wave shapes up into a perfect slightly steep and sometimes even a bit barreling long right with a constant peak. Holds up in large swell, occasionally even getting as big as overhead when the west coast is out of hand.
Not that crowded also, and the crowd is generally mellow and cool.
Highly recommended place to visit in the Algarve region.
