Included in several kind of top beach lists around the world, Marinha Beach (Praia da Marinha in Portuguese) truly deserves its fame. Wonderful rock formations, soft sand, crystal clear water, magical colors.
The next question about award-winning beaches like Marinha is whether they are destroyed by their own fame. We were happy to see it’s not the case for Marinha. It’s not just pretty, but its water is also of high quality. Though we are not sure how crowded it is in the summer, but we haven’t found many people there in the beginning of September.
Being also the trailhead for “Seven Hanging Valleys Walk”, one of the most spectacular coastal hikes we’ve ever done, Marinha Beach undoubtedly impressed. It’s among our favorites not just in Algarve but also in the world – at least the part of the world that we’ve seen. So what’s the point we are trying to make here? I don’t know. We like dreaming, but experiencing that reality can sometimes so easily exceed dreams is even better. Marinha Beach is that kind of place.
