The Thing about having nice beaches like Zavial and Furnas on your
door step is why go anywhere else... it won't be any better... unless it
is an off day.. we had 2 off days in September 2009 so did a couple of
visits based on articles from H&E and our trusty Costa Vicentina Mapa
Gratuito (Southwest Algarve Free Road Map and Useful Information) which
lists beaches and the activities on them.
Well this is a gem ....
Sand, sea, surf, river, cliffs, cafes, public loos, showers, good
access stairs, surf school and a big Naturist area ....with a rocky
outcrop off the beach to keep the surfers at the other end. We loved it
even though the weather was iffy, cloud giving way to thunder storms....
Spot the Hun ..just to give you some idea of the scale of this beach.
Bun Rating .. 5/5
There was another bay accessed from the same car park by a long
flight stairs. We wondered if it is Samouqueira mentioned in the Mapa
but not shown..... where the only activity listed is 'naturismo'
