All the way along the Algarve, almost at the end of the
world, just short of Sagres lies Praia da Zavial. This is a
small well sheltered beach around a small headland a short walk
from the beach bar (closed on Monday!) and car park.
Hun looking back towards the headland and the bar.
According to Hun there used to be "Zona Nudista" signs where the orange
rock are...... no sign of them now.
Facing the other way another headland you can get around at
low tide with another small beach beyond.
A really nice beach we will be back ........and
so will our friends from Ireland the Ms who sent a long e-mail
about their findings on the Algarve. They agree with us on a lot
of them including that Zavial is one of the best beaches on the
Algarve! and sent some photos too
They also said that the beach bar served good food, the Buns
found it was closed early season Mondays ... so sad!
The view form the bar terrace.. nice isn't it.
Discovered it's a popular beach with surfers too
Sept 09 still great but there is now a lifeguard and a
concession zone (sun beds etc). We hope it doesn't change the
cliental there is a nice friendly international vibe about the
