Create an itinerary including Praia da Marinha
Bring your snorkeling gear for an underwater adventure at Praia da Marinha, noted for its calm waters and rocky outcrops. The clear waters lapping this beach offer you a chance to explore a diverse marine environment populated by sea anemones, shrimp, and colorful fish. One of the most photographed spots in Portugal, the beach hugs orange-colored limestone cliffs that are largely responsible for keeping this stretch of the coastline free of big tourist crowds. Once you get tired of your secluded beach lair, head out to sea on a guided boat trip, or pack a picnic lunch and explore the nearby caves and rock pools. Make Praia da Marinha a centerpiece of your Caramujeira vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Caramujeira tour planner.

  • Lovely beach and I can confidently say so after visiting several other Algarve beaches which, believe me, are not all amazing. I’m sorry; I know I’m in the minority opinion here. We were not...

  • Simply stunning view. Very picturesque from any angle. The 1.5km hiking trail is worth it, but could get very hot in the afternoon. Wear hat and proper shoes
  • Praia da Marinha is one of the most beautiful and emblematic beaches on the Algarve coast, so much so that it has been ranked among the 5 most beautiful beaches in Portugal and among the 10 best in the world. Thanks to its beauty, it has become the perfect setting for photographic services and reports. This small beach is surrounded by cliffs eroded over the years, which have generated a variety of rock formations such as arches, caves or natural wells. The most impressive of them is 50 meters high, and all the other small rocks seem to dance around it. The contrast between the crystalline and turquoise colors of the sea with the golden color of the rock is beautiful. The rocky walls of Praia da Marinha hide the marine diversity present in the territory, such as anemones, sea urchins, starfish and shrimp. In addition, the algae hide cuttlefish and octopus. This corner of preserved nature, almost wild, is very popular among lovers of diving, since here you can take a pleasant walk among the underwater natural beauty of the Algarve
