Praia do Evaristo

This is a small rocky beach nestling between low, attractively-eroded cliffs. Huge seaweed-covered rocks are scattered along the tideline and under the water, filling the air with the salty scent of the sea. The hot, dry beach is framed by plants, especially stone pine and mastic trees, and massive century plants. Closer to the sands, the predominant plant is Mediterranean saltwort, which is resistant to sea spray. You can go for walks along the cliff top; from there, you will be able to observe the curious landscapes that result from these rock formations, deeply eroded by the elements. Snorkelling is great way to discover the marine creatures that live in among the rocks, from the characteristic intertidal fauna (barnacles, mussels, limpets and anemones) visible on the rocky walls to shoals of various types of bream and Mediterranean rainbow wrasse, swimming around the rocks.
