Praia do Brejão

The beach here was once known as Praia do Brejão, after the nearby village. However this changed after Portugal's most famous fado singer, Amália Rodrigues, stayed at a villa overlooking the beach.

Little has changed since those days and the beach is very much unspoilt. Praia da Amália is not what you would describe as a family beach; it is difficult to find and involves a fair hike to get down to. It is also one of those beaches that virtually disappears at high tide, although, as you can see, there is a wonderful stretch of sand when the tide is out.

To the southern end of the beach is a small stream that cascades down the cliff face.
