Not so attractive as the islands but still a nice beach where you´ll find more people and options to eat and drink. Easy access with boats at Faro docks or by Próximo Bus 16 Line, parking facilities if you go by car (there are two - one in front of the beach, a bit crowded on high season - and a brand new and bigger one before the bridge, 200m walking to the sea).

Fantastic and isolated beach, white sand, crystalline sea. There´s only a restaurant there, prices are not so good, if you are on a low budget I recommend you bring some snacks with you.
