Visit Praia dos Tres Irmaos at Low Tide

It is a lot of fun to explore the other coves until you reach it. But be mindful of the tide as it can be complicated seeing the cliffs at high tide. 

See The Stunning Praia da Marinha

Praia da Marinha has often been rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is one of the best beaches in the Algarve. This long beach with towering cliffs sure has a lot to offer with many coves to explore and a series of natural arches.

Splash in the Waves of Praia da Falesia

This beach is one of the longest beaches, with 6 kilometers of hard work created by Mother Nature with layers of colors and endless soft sand. And the best part is that you can see it entirely from a viewpoint on a promontory at the West end.
