Ponta do Sol Beach

The Ponta do Sol beach, hidden away in a small cove in the village of Ponta do Sol, between the slopes of the valley, is just 160 meters long.

Although it doesn’t bear a blue flag, fortnightly results from this pebble beach show that the water is high quality.

Facilities for bathers include changing rooms and toilet facilities, even for people with reduced mobility, as well as a snack bar, summer library and a games area. There is even parking close to the beach.
