Praia dos Tremoços


At Praia dos Tremoços, a process of beach nourishment and the construction of a jetty have resulted in the accumulation of sand in the small bay sheltered by high cliffs, where for some years there has been practically no sand at all. Access to the beach is through the holiday village built around the bay. You take a cool, stone path, lined by pine trees and oleander, to a signposted trail on the cliff top. To get on to the beach, you go down a narrow staircase, cut out of the cliff face, where you can see marine fossils. These warmly-coloured cliffs have many gullies, mostly to the west, where the vegetation consisting of pine trees and Mediterranean scrub grows thickly. In the places where there is water runoff, you will also see reed plantations. You can follow the cliff top trail westwards, with due caution, and admire the superb views over the coast, taking in the ample, sandy bay of Armação de Pera and the neighbouring beach of Cova Redonda.

More information

Note: Since there is a possibility of rockfalls or stones coming loose and falling on to the beach, you should keep a safe distance from the cliffs, and take care if you are walking along the cliff top, staying well back from the edge. However, you are advised against using the cliff top trails that head eastwards. Although beachgoers do use the beach, it is classed as a restricted use beach, since a large part of it lies within an area where there is a risk of landslides.
Road access is by tarmacked road from the EN 125, turning south at Porches or from Armação de Pera, and following the signs to the Vila Vita holiday village. There is medium-sized, organised parking around 300 m from the beach, inside the holiday village. Support infrastructures include information facilities and there are lifeguards on duty in the summer holiday season. Orientation: south.
