Kathleen from Canada on TripAdvisor said: "This is one (among many) beautiful beach I have seen on the western side of Portugal ... miles and miles of fine sand with clear waters. When my friends and I visited recently, the beaches were not overly crowded. Many seafood restaurants and cafes can be found across the road from the beach. "
