This beautiful, south facing beach can be found in the municipality of Vila do Bispo just a short drive from the village of Raposeira. The beach itself is not very big, it’s only about 100 metres long, but it makes up for it with its picture perfect crystal clear water, white sand and topical palm trees. In the summer this is the ideal spot for a little dip in the water and some sun bathing and if you get too warm the restaurant right by the sand will gladly serve you a refreshing drink. Throughout the bathing season lifeguards are on duty here and in the winter you can be almost certain to have this dreamy beach all to yourself.
