Are you looking for someplace more sheltered, less crowded and intimate? Then plan to spend an afternoon at Praia da Azedinha. It is just north of Ossos Beach separated by a small headland and defined by fascinating rock ledges. The sand is great. The warm water is crystal clear with a gentle descent making it easy to stand or teach kids how to snorkel. The only downside is there are no amenities. So, bring whatever you will need for a perfect day at the beach.
