Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Praia do Inatel is easy to get to and has lots of visitors. This congenial beach, which is named after the hotel here, has everything needed to make your day out perfect. Relax on the soft sand, have your tensions massaged away or buy delicious refreshments from the beach vendors. Children can bathe safely here under the supervision of the lifeguards. In the evening you can bring your day on the beach to a close by relaxing with cocktails and music in the beach bar.

Praia do Inatel - Congenial and easy-going

The owners of the hotel are doubtless very proud that a beach bears the name of their establishment. The hotel sits high up on a promontory and is a signature feature of Praia do Inatel. This is a popular spot with locals and visitors alike.

The beach is bordered by an ochre-coloured cliff. If you're not in too much of a hurry to get into the water, you could go for a walk along one of the trails along the clifftop. They lead to special miradouros (viewpoints) where you can take fantastic panorama photos. The view up there is indescribable.

On the long sandy surface you will quickly find a nice spot to stretch out on. In peak season you'll have to hunt for a bit, but it won't take long to find one. As this beach is very close to the town it has lots of visitors. So be prepared to pick up vociferous snippets of conversation from your Portuguese neighbours on their beach towels. If you’re a bit tense, you can treat yourself to a massage.

It’s safe to bathe here, which makes the beach very suitable for families. There is always a lifeguard with binoculars in hand, monitoring the area. The evenings at Praia do Inatel are never boring, either, as one of the bars regularly holds dance events. If you still haven't had enough after a long day at the beach, you can come here after sunset to dance beside the sea and enjoy a few drinks.
