Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Head to rabbit beach. This fine bay really lives up to its name. On Praia da Coelha magnificent shells are washed up by the sky-blue water and underwater there are lots of fish to see. Rock tunnels lead you to remote areas where you can soak up the harmony of the place. You can either spend your lunchtime here or on the covered terrace of the small beach restaurant. Branching paths through the surrounding coastal shrubland lead you to hidden coves and magnificent viewpoints.

Praia da Coelha - An exquisite sandy bay

Emblazoned on the entrance sign is a rabbit. It welcomes you to what is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in the south-west region of Portugal. Coelha means a female rabbit and the painted image makes the beach immediately likeable. Praia da Coelha promises quiet hours in a tranquil setting.

The dirt track that leads here is lined with carob trees. Pick yourself a ripe fruit from one of them and let the sweetness melt onto your tongue. The beach is surrounded by coastal shrubland. If you're not in a hurry, you can strike out on one of the trails that branches off the track and explore the hilly landscape around it. These paths lead you to viewpoints and hidden coves.

On the beach the peace surrounds you straight away. Even in peak season you'll encounter few people here. Locals love the place and like to come at the weekends with their families. You can find your own little spot and shelter from the sun under the shade of the cliffs. Along the water's edge you'll find rock passages that lead you to remote sections of the beach.

The surface of the water is calm and you can swim in crystal-clear turquoise sea. The south-west side is sheltered from the strong winds. You should have your snorkelling or diving equipment ready too because there are lots of species of fish to see underwater. If you get into difficulty despite the ideal bathing conditions, Stepan will come to your aid.

He has been the lifeguard on this beach for many years and can't imagine a better job. Under a beach umbrella on the golden sand, full of beautiful shells, he keeps a lookout by the bright blue sea. In the café at the entrance to the beach you can cool off with ice cream, snacks or cool drinks.
