Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
A favorite of beachgoers in Algarve, Praia Da Rocha is named for the beautiful cliffs and rocks near its shoreline. Though the sandy shores are ideal for playing with kids, taking long walks, or lounging in the sun, the area is called Rock Beach because of the cliffs. The blue waters have made this a favorite getaway for people from Portimao and beyond since the late 1800s. You'll have your pick of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and clubs along Tomás Cabreira, an avenue across the top of the beach. You can also visit the Fortress of Santa Catarina de Ribamar for views of the coast and marina.

  • The beach itself is beautiful and is really big with a lot of sand, but unfortunately in August it's too crowded which is not good at pandemic times.  more »
  • Massive beach , lots of bars and restaurants but choose carefully . Water sports plenty of sun beds but sea very cold 🥶 and very wide open . There’s better beaches to go to in this area  more »
