About the Beach

What is Praia da Ponta Ruiva 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 Vila do Bispo.

Praia da Ponta Ruiva Beach acquired this name for having an orange cliff at the south side that is transformed into an islet during high tide.
The very long sand gets considerably shorter when the tide is rising. During low tide an access to a smaller sandy area is revealed.
The waters are rough and very attractive to surfers.
This is a really far-off beach.
