About the Beach

What is Praia da Ponta Pequena Beach?

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Albufeira.

Praia da Ponta Pequena Beach has a reduced sand that gets fully immersed during high tide.
About 130 meters off shore, an islet and a smaller rock can be sighted breaking the sea water.
On the east cliff there's a natural formed arch which grants access to the next beach.
A narrow trail allows walking almost all the way to the beach but access by boat is recommended.
