Travellers and activities

Praia da Rocha for family beach holidays

The town’s beach of the same name is an alluring 1.5 kilometre stretch of fine golden sand backed by orangey coloured cliffs backing up the west and boasting shallow waters perfect for families. Rent a sunbed or follow the local’s lead and lay down your towel close to the water’s edge. When the tide goes down, it is possible to walk from Praia da Rocha westwards along several pretty coves, such as Praia do Vau and Praia do Alemão, where you can discover intimate sea caves and rock pools for hours of family-friendly splashy fun.

Praia da Rocha for surfers

The Algarve is popular among surfers as a result of its wave guarantee. Exposed to the Atlantic Ocean on both the west and south coast, you can find a good break on this coastline pretty much every day of the year. The locals congregate at Praia da Rocha close to the jetty for the best breaks. Beginner surfers are better off surfing the waves a bit further to the right of the beach, where it is less busy and the waves less powerful.

It’s all here in this one little town, where you will never go hungry! The town’s restaurants sit cheek by jowl from one end of the main avenue along the top of the beach to the other and cater for all budgets. At Portimão Marina, wonderful fish restaurants predominate bathed in the aroma of barbecued sardines.
