  • The beach at Monte Gordo is just stunning, miles of golden sand with a wooden boardwalk with steps and ramps down to the sand. The beach is very clean and there are umbrellas and beds in sections...

  • Beach with very hot water, very extensive sand, lots of people. Nevertheless, fantastic family days. The only less positive point was the excess seaweed.

  • This a great long and wide beach, sandy and clean. It's hard to find a pebble here so it's perfect for barefoot walking. There are several boardwalks leading to this place from the town and there's at least 200- hundred meter long boardwalk along the beach. The beach is wheelchair accessible. On the top of that there's several very nice restaurants serving fresh seafood and a few beach chair/sun loungers/umbrellas services available. You can walk along the beach for miles and enjoy some fantastic views of the Atlantic ocean. Monte Gordo beach is about a 2-3 mile walk from the river that separates Portugal from Spain. The only con is the lack of the public bathrooms in the area. And no soft serve ice cream.
  • Beautiful fine sandy beach with clear shoreline ocean. Parade of decked terrace restaurants serving fresh seafood based cuisine at reasonable prices considering their proximity to the beach. The beach just fell short of its 5th star due to a lack of toilet facilities (although those found were pristine) and no access to free use outdoor shower facilities, (those available were coin operated).
