This seems to be a bit more of an 'up class' beach with a slightly fancier restaurant and sunbeds and beach umbrella's.

If you enjoy walking/hiking this is a must! The trail connects Sao Rafael beach in the east with Galé beach in the west, a 2-3 hrs walk on top of the cliffs, with spectacular views over the Atlantic ocean! There are several other beaches & beach bars/restaurants in between, perfect for a pit stop or to get on/off the trail.

A gorgeous beach, Sao Rafael is blessed with fine sand and surrounded by some spectacular limestone rock formations like the Ponte Pequena or the Small Bridge and the Ninho das Andorinhas or the Swallow’s Nest. Years of erosion have led to these fascinating formations and many tourists only visit the beach to take a look at them. Though one can walk to the beach from nearby resort, most visitors prefer to get to it by a vehicle. Vehicles can be parked on the cliff, but only a designated number of cars are allowed in a day so as not to destabilize the cliff.
