Praia da Amoreira


The route to the beach takes you through pine groves and extensive dune fields dotted with pink due to the abundance of spiny thrift, a plant which is typically seen along sandy coasts. The descent to the beach starts at a natural viewpoint overlooking the coastline. A steep trail takes you down the cliff face to a staircase leading on to the sands.

Carriagem beach consists of a narrow strip of sand, and the sea cliffs, which have virtually no vegetation other than the huge century plants that mark the landscape, are clearly crumbling, so it advisable to visit the beach only at low tide. This stretch of the coast is very rocky and when the waters recede a curious natural amphitheatre, carved in black schist, appears at the northernmost tip of the beach.

Very unspoilt, this is an extremely peaceful and almost always deserted beach that tends to be mostly used for fishing.

More information

Note: Given the risk of landslides and loose stones falling on to the beach, you are advised to keep a safe distance from the cliffs.

Road access is via a dirt track from Rogil (EN 120), heading towards the beach for approximately 4 km. There is a small, informal parking area. There are no support infrastructures and no lifeguard on duty. Orientation: north-west.
