Praia da Amoreira is a beach located in the village of Aljezur, within the Vicentine Coast Natural Park. The beach has beautiful, fine, golden sand, is backed and sheltered by sand dunes and is reached via the wooden steps down the cliff side, located at the carpark. Because the sea can be quite rough at times, this beach is hugely popular with surfers and bodyboarders but there are also lovely rock pools for children to explore and play in.
When the tide is out, a shallow lagoon is left on the beach, making this an ideal and safe place for families with young children. There is a café and toilets at the base of the cliff, and lifeguards are in attendance during the summer months.
A particular point of interest at the northern tip of the beach is the black rock formation, which resembles the image of a giant lying down.
