Rocha Baixinha is a peaceful area in the far east of the long Falésia Beach and a favourite destination for many of Portugal's politicians. The beach is split into two areas, Rocha Baixinha Oeste (East) and Rocha Baixinha-Leste (West). Both beaches have been awarded blue flags.

The beach has become a bit of a surfing hotspot. The wind drives the waves onto the shore and you can get up on your board in the rough swell, windsurfing and kite surfing are also worthwhile a go. The current and the coastline are perfect for riding the Atlantic waves.


If you don't fancy an adventure on the water you can take advantage of the beach's other amenities. It is great for exploring on long walks and you'll see various structures in the sand on the way. If hunger or thirst strikes, the numerous beach bars and cafés offer everything you could need.

The boardwalks at the back of the beach lead to the stylish beach bars that provide the kindling for the explosion of nightly sunset parties in the summer months. The dusk shindigs have all the flair of a festival. If you have the stamina to celebrate until the DJ plays the last song you will certainly not be alone.
