Summary of the Beach Inspectors
If you want to have a beach all to yourselves then come to Praia do Boiao. To get here, cross the large beach of Praia do Barranco das Canas. In the neighbouring bay, tranquillity awaits you. A large part of the sand is taken up by a rocky hollow, where you can shelter from the sun's rays, relax and meditate. The area is very natural and guarantees hours of undisturbed bathing in the Atlantic.

Praia do Boiao - Tucked away between cliffs

In the Southern Algarve, near Portimão you can discover hidden gems. Beyond the famous beach landscapes there are hidden bays just waiting to be discovered. Some of them take a long time to find. Praia do Boiao can only be accessed via the neighbouring beach, Barranco das Canas. Come here if you've had enough of loud music and crowds of people.

You'll find nothing of the sort at Praia do Boiao. The small beach is situated in a rocky hollow, which means you're sheltered from the sun all day. Here below the cliffs you can sense nature's pulse. Breathe in the invigorating sea air and relax.

The water here is very clean and clear, which makes bathing in the Atlantic a refreshing experience. It's a perfect spot for switching off completely - your thoughts will be as lucid as the water. Being close to nature can work real wonders. Problems no longer seem as big and negative feelings disappear.

Use the day at Praia do Boiao to reflect. Allow yourself a few hours, because time will fly by quickly. If you get hungry you can visit one of the restaurants on the adjacent beach. You don't have to walk far to buy small snacks and drinks.
