Praia do Amado

Amado is a large beach stretching along three valleys. The warm red and ochre hues of the cliffs dominate to the north; and to the south, the grey of the craggy schist rocks once again comes to the fore. Amado Beach is famed for its versatile, diversified waves that justify the constant presence of on-site surfing schools. It is a frequent venue for national and international competitions in the sport. Despite being a very popular beach, you can still find some peaceful spots if you walk along the sands for a bit. A network of walkways leads visitors to various parts of the beach and to viewpoints overlooking it. There is road access via the cliff to the north, allowing you to reach Bordeira Beach, passing by the place known as Pontal and the curious fishing harbour at Zimbreirinha, where the boats are moored on wooden platforms suspended on the cliff. Along the route, there are various stopping points from which you can admire the stunning scenery along this stretch of coast.
