Park near the Restaurante Praia Grande and walk along the beach (tide permitting) to Ferragudo. It's a great stretch of sand with good views of Portimao across the river. Stroll back through the town.

This is a must-visit place. Want to jump in the waves? Want to be in an almost empty beach in a fantasticly beautiful place? This is where you go. Just take a taxi and ask him to come back in 2-3hours.

Go for a good drink and food to the smal restaurant on the left side of the beach when entering this beach. Very friendly staff and the quality of the food is good.
