Praia do Barril Reviews
É preciso ir de comboio (se não quiser caminhar mais de 1 km) para chegar á praia. Fora isso, a praia é razoável. more »You must go by train (if you do not want to walk more than 1 km) to get to the beach. Other than that, the beach is reasonable.
Imensa paz e o sossego...sitio aconselhável para passeios ao longo da praia, com vaso areal. Magnifico. more »Immense peace and quiet... Advisable place for walks along the beach, with a sandy vase. Magnificent.
Easy to park in the morning, arrived around 10am and there was PLENTY of space for cars. We caught the 10 minute train to the beach, sweet little slow train for about 3euro return. The beach is very long so there are no large crowds once you get onto the sand. The sea was warm, clear water, just windy the day we went. Lovely 5 hours of sun bathing, restaurant and shops at the beach, toilets too. All in all very good and a LOT quieter than other tourist beaches.
Great beach, accessible by train or by foot. It is not far to walk. Umbrella is a good idea since there is no shade. Water is warm and waves are not dangerous. In tbe3 evening when there is no wind it gets infested by like a million mosquitoes...
