Praia da Marinha - Algarve
Best visited at low tide, otherwise, the beach is too small and difficult to leave.
July and August are the peak season, and the beach gets crowded. June and September are less busy, and prices decrease. There is a huge parking area which fills up soon during the peak season.
It's the most beautiful and famous beach at the Algarve with lots of rock formations up to 30 meters high. The rocks protect the beach from cold winds. Even in winter, you may sunbathe at Praia da Marinha. Anyway, it is dangerous to be too close to the cliffs. In 1998 a part of the cliff was broken and fallen down, the reason why it is harder to get to the end of the beach.
Where to stay
