The beach is between Vila do Bispo and Sagres, protected by huge barriers. The car parking next to the beach is small but you can leave the car at the beginning of the access that leads to the beach. This is used almoust by schools surf, by surfers and by a few tourists who want to find a quiet place. Sometimes you can find groups of people finishing or starting the hiking along Via Algarviana. The waves are usually weak and a delight for swimmers. The beach is compact and flat, and in empty tide you can visit the rock that gives the name to the beach.
