Praia da Arrifana (Aljezur)

This beach is born in a beautiful cove in the shape of a shell, sheltered from the cold north and the undulations of the north, associated with a small fishing village. The sand is extensive, with more than 700 meters, but narrow, and is bordered by imposing black cliffs, carved in schist. Looking south, a narrow, dark leixão emerging from the sea stands out in the landscape; it is Pedra da Agulha, which has become an icon of the Vincentian coast. There are good conditions for diving on the north end of the beach, next to the fishing port, which is also one of the beaches of choice for surfing and bodyboarding. The panoramic view of the Arrifana Fortress (currently in ruins), at the top of the cliff to the north, is breathtaking. At Ponta da Atalaia, famous for its perceptions, there are traces of a Muslim Ribat, a convent-fortress of great archaeological value.
