Nice beach, with a different way than other Portuguese beaches to reach to. You have a nice path to walk, pass the bridge on the river, and then you can use the cute train to get to beach or walk (takes 10 minutes). You'll see the historical Tuna fishery, nice anchor graveyard, and can chill on the beach if it's not windy.
Beautiful beach, super clean sand and water. It's a little more pricey than other beaches in the area, beds, food drink etc. hence the 4 stars. But actually it has everything you need in one place, so it's great to spend a day or two here. The little train to get there is quirky, very enjoyable. Also it's nice to actually walk to the beach, and take in some of the natural surroundings, and spot the wildlife.
