B008 Barranco Beach  

Beach with the ‘Praia Dourada’ (Golden Beach) award.
A long stretch of sand framed by a continuous cliff, this beach boasts good infrastructure and amenities and offers a wide variety of water sports.
It can be accessed by car or on foot down a track. There is a small parking area adjoining the beach with spaces for people with reduced mobility.
The nooks and crannies of the tall cliffs that line this beach make it a favourite nesting place for bee-eaters during the reproductive season. In 2000 it was awarded the ‘Bandeira Dourada’ (Golden Flag) for its rich and moderately used surroundings from an environmental point of view.
