Praia Da Rocha, Praia da Rocha

4.4
A favorite of beachgoers in Algarve, Praia Da Rocha is named for the beautiful cliffs and rocks near its shoreline. Though the sandy shores are ideal for playing with kids, taking long walks, or lounging in the sun, the area is called Rock Beach because of the cliffs. The blue waters have made this a favorite getaway for people from Portimao and beyond since the late 1800s. You'll have your pick of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and clubs along Tomás Cabreira, an avenue across the top of the beach. You can also visit the Fortress of Santa Catarina de Ribamar for views of the coast and marina.

  • Beautiful beach maintained but crowded and extremely noisy. If you are with young children, ok but if you want to calm down, go your way.

  • Large resort like beach, lots of sunbeds, parasols and restaurants/shops. Good for families, but no particularly great view. There are much better and natural beaches around.
  • Beautiful beace, beautiful resort and people are so friendly and helpful. Lots of places to eat and drink reasonably priced. It was a lovely walk from our hotel here.
