Praia da Marina


This is a small beach with calm waters, located in the heart of the River Arade Estuary, and separated from Praia da Rocha by the western jetty of the river’s harbour. The beach is framed by lines of palm trees ad appealing open-air cafés that spill on to the sands, offering an interesting variety of leisure areas. Access to the beach is via the foot and cycle path that runs through Portimão Marina, where there is a vast array of tourist facilities and shops, as well as a range of services related to recreational and competitive water sports. The beach affords a fine view over the harbour and traffic in the River Arade. You will see sport and recreational vessels (yachts and sail boats) constantly toing and froing, as well as fishing boats making their way back into the harbour surrounded by squawking flocks of gulls. From the marina’s seafront avenue, you can see the eastern bank of the Arade and the picturesque town of Ferragudo, its beaches lined by ochre cliffs and the deep green of the Mediterranean vegetation. To the north, the Monchique Mountains mark the landscape.
