Santa Eulália Beach


Santa Eulália Beach


In Santa Eulália, the blue of the sea and the bright tones of the sand combine harmoniously with the cool green atmosphere of the surrounding pine grove. The stone pines form a dense wood and grow precariously perched at the edge of the small abysses that have been created by landslides on the cliffs, where rainwater runoff has carved many deep gullies. Down on the sands, the cliff appears polished and worn by the action of the waves and a stream that flows on to the sand in the rainy months.

A dense reed plantation grows around the mouth of the stream. The beach is large, with lots of delightful nooks as a result of the rock formations.

There are some very peaceful sections on the beach as you head eastwards. A line of tall palm trees lines a small footpath on the central section of the beach. To the east, you can already glimpse the line of white and red cliffs on Praia da Falésia.

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 on tarmacked roads is via the road connecting Areias de S. João to Olhos d’Água, following the signs to the beach. There is plenty of parking: an informal area on beaten earth, around 300 m from the beach, and an organised car park next to the beach. Support infrastructures include restaurants, WC, information and recreational facilities, and there are lifeguards on duty in the summer holiday season. Orientation: south.
