About the Beach

What is Praia do Castelejo Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
3888000
days for the end of bathing season

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 do Castelejo Beach has a very long sand beside the mouth of a small stream.
At north it is bounded by the Pedra da Laje1, where anglers often go. At south stands the 2, a viewpoint on top of the highest cliff of the entire Algarve coast, with 156 meters high.
This beach is more crowded than its neighboring one and a place of choice by surfers.
