Praia da Marinha, Caramujeira

#5 of 270 in Beaches in Portugal
Bring your snorkeling gear for an underwater adventure at Praia da Marinha, noted for its calm waters and rocky outcrops. The clear waters lapping this beach offer you a chance to explore a diverse marine environment populated by sea anemones, shrimp, and colorful fish. One of the most photographed spots in Portugal, the beach hugs orange-colored limestone cliffs that are largely responsible for keeping this stretch of the coastline free of big tourist crowds. Once you get tired of your secluded beach lair, head out to sea on a guided boat trip, or pack a picnic lunch and explore the nearby caves and rock pools.

  • Flott strand med steinformasjoner men ekstremt mange mennesker selv på en torsdag i september. Mye tang og gress i vannet. Vi gikk ned, tok noen bilder og dro heller på en annen strand i stedet.  more »
  • If you are wondering whether to visit this beaches, I would recommend it with a clear conscience. The beach is beautiful, maybe not too big, but it has its charm. From the beach A view of the rock formation in the Shape of the heart (besides, you can also reach the mountain cliffs, where there are some nice observation points). Right at the exit to the beach, on the left is a grotto, I recommend to enter it and go deeper, because after a dozen meters we will pass the cave to the second small beach.
