Open beach - This spot is one of the rare beaches with open view to the sea along the Sand-Algarve between Faro and the Spanish border. All others have offshore sand islands with more or less hard access.
Chance to get a wave duru#ing summer period is low, better come in winter when West-Algarve is too rough.
