Natural pools formed in the rocks near the waterline (in low tide) are popular among visitors as the water is slightly warmer and somewhat shielded from wave action. On the sidewalls of these pools numerous sea creatures can be seen.In the summer of 2015 the walkable extension of the beach was greatly increased due to natural sediment transport allowing access to the north part, which in previous years was accessible only in low tide and required climbing rock features.Add Praia Vale Dos Homens to your Rogil travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Rogil driving holiday tool .
