  • We were only. 10 minute walk away from this beach, so visited often. Not busy in February, but still a beautiful beach to go to and relax. A must visit if in the area!  more »
  • Stayed in the Clube Praia Da Oura in February 2020. Lucky with the weather as it was unbroken sunshine with very warm sunshine. Really glad we chose the area as there was a good mix of shops...  more »

  • Beautiful clean beach! lots of activities to do. Bar on the beach with a variety of drinks and food. The sea can be a bit chilly but after a few minutes you forget. Perfect place to enjoy some sunshine for family or friends whatever your crowd might be.
  • Very popular tourist destination... largely visited by folks from the UK. Vibrant night life, excellent food choices. Beach is clean, recreation area is quite spread out. Good crowd and party mood throughout. A bit noisy on the main Street where all the activities converge...but worth a visit.
