About the Beach

What is Praia do Risco 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 do Risco Beach presents several rocky formations. The sand absence discourages bathers of enjoying the sea water.
The top of the cliff is full of vegetation and a few houses.
About 100 meters away from the shore it's possible to sight two rocks emerging from the sea water.
Access is by a dirt trail on the cliff slope.
