Awoke to rain and the hills shrouded in misty clouds. But ya know, the sea beckons and it is already wet. Praia Altereinhos has these really cute rocks and waterfalls and we had it all to ourselves, I guess because of the rain. There were...More

Quite steep to get down to this beach, but worth the effort. Lovely sand, but not as sunbathing and swimming friendly as the main beach in Zambujeira. Not so safe for surfing, as there are hidden rocks.

I had all 4 BMW wheel centres stolen from my rental car while parked in the parking lot. We were at the beach for an hour or two. Many steps down from the parking lot to the lovely beach.

Pretty and quiet beach very near Zambujeira do Mar. I recomend to go in the low tide hours to enjoy the beach with more space.

Amazing Beach with 2 coves, the first one is more busy, the second one very quiet and ideal for nudism.

Very pretty beach with magnificent scenery and spectacular rock formation. Naturists are to the left and also in the second cove to the left.

The beach is set in the national park and remains very much a virgin beach. Access is via steep steps but worth every step of it! other than in high season, July and August, the beach is of low occupancy and you get your own...More

Beyond beautiful! The access involves lots of steps but the reward is absolutely amazing! Not too many people and plenty of space for sand castles, small ponds and sand fights. Some naturism, not the majority! Our favourite beach of all!!!

We loved Altarinhos beach, just a few kilometers south from Zambujeira do Mar. The beach is very safe for children when the tide is low.
