This place is just great. The whole beach is littered with shacks and related groups of sun beds. The hygiene of some not the best. Our hotel offered free shuttle to the beach so we went where they recommended. Pousada is just great. Sunbed hire that is offset against your food and drink purchases. Fabulous selection of drinks and simple... More

Pousada is neatly tucked away by the beach front. It has a beautiful landscape with plants and trees well planted all over which makes the place really cool. We went for lunch and it was very pleasant although the weather was hot. When you park in the lane, it's a couple of minutes walk through the sand to actually get... More

The Top Ranking and positive reviews of all the satisfied guests does not mean that our restaurant should be affordable to all . Your description of our little restaurant as ……“, a simple beach restaurant, large terrace, simple seats and table”…… is spot on, most of our guests consider it as…..... “ simply elegant “….. our intention is not to...

I'm not a fan of this beach and wouldn't come here if it wasn't for this wonderful place. Set back from the main drag of sun loungers it's an unexpected and very welcome haven. The service is amazing, the food is delicious. It's relaxed and also lively, sunset is beautiful - it's just a great place to be and will... More
