There are two beaches within a short walking distance from our villas – Praia Do Ancao and Praia do Garrao – both beaches are long, open, flat beaches with the trademark red cliffs.

The beaches offer a wide range of water sports facilities including, banana boats, canoes, pedalo’s, surf boards, kayaks, parasailing, water skiing, jet skis, donut water rides as well as fabulous dining with great restaurant food & bars alongside.
Both beaches of Praia do Garrao & Praia Do Ancao are within easy walking distance from our villas. If you choose to drive then you can drive to the lagoon, park your car and walk across the lagoon on the wooden walkway to the beach. This makes it a very practical villa if you have restricted mobility.
