Praia da Rocha

Longest Beaches of Algarve

Praia da Rocha is one of the first places in Algarve that has been transformed into a tourist destination. That is not without reason, this town has incredibly beautiful and long beaches and is one of the most famous beach destinations in Portugal. Here you can sunbathe on large, long sandy beaches with huge, graceful rocks that provide pleasant shade from the warm sun. It is a lively beach resort town filled with bars, clubs and people from all around the world. The destination is also a good starting point to discover the rest of Algarve, with Reggagudo, Alvor and Portimao close by. For a nice view over Praia da Rocha you can visit the fort of Santa Catarina de Ribamar and the fort of St. John of Arade, which served as protection against pirates in 1600 and 1700.
