Praia da Cordoama

This is a huge beach with the sands stretching for as far as the eye can see. The sight of cliff after cliff, each progressively mistier than the last, is breathtaking. Although the beach is home to surfing and bodyboarding schools, there are still peaceful spots to be found along its length.
The cliffs here are tall, reaching over 100 metres in height and there is a hill that is not only a natural viewpoint but is also often used by paragliders as a take-off site.
Gleaming white layers can be seen on the north-facing rock walls but they are nothing more than extensive lichen cover. A small stream flows through a gully on to the sands. The scent of rockrose is intense here, mingling with that of the sea breeze, and on the small dunes that form on the beach you can see plants such as European beach grass, sea holly and the eye-catching sea daffodil.
