Create an itinerary including Praia do Camilo
The secluded, golden sand of Praia do Camilo, surrounded by Baroque-like cliffs and grottos, features a soft ocean floor as well as precipices with mysterious alleyways. Nestled at the bottom of a cliff, the small beach can be accessed either by descending more than 240 stairs or by boat. Spread your towel across the warm sand and catch some rays, and swim in the calm turquoise waters, sheltered from strong winds. At the top of the cliffs you'll see a restaurant, where you can try some freshly caught fish while taking in the wide open views of the ocean.

  • I enjoyed the view and experience of this beautiful place. The waves are amazing even in the morning. If you're lucky, you could see some dolphins. Try out deep sea diving around here. You'll love it. Plenty of things to do. Great place to visit.
  • Great little beach. Get early so you can grab a spot in the sand: it gets really busy around 10:30-11:00. Great spot for snorkeling: loads of fish big and small, amazing spot to swim around the rocky coast and see fish swimming happy!
