Ilha do Pessegueiro

Reviewed By sptsilva - Oeiras, Portugal

Family beach with a long shore line inviting bathers to take long walks. It is a shame that for the beach area that is not patrolled/watched people keep bringing their pets and spoiling such a lovely place.

Praia dos Buizinhos

Reviewed By Ronaldo070 - The Hague, The Netherlands

This small beach is a bit hidden and that is a good thing because there is not much space on the beach. It is surrounded by nice rock formations and the water has a nice bright colour. Nearby you can buy food and take nice pictures of the view. In high season there were enough parking spaces nearby.

Herdade do Pessegueiro

Reviewed By longclose - Chippenham, United Kingdom

I went to Herdade do Pessegueiro in April, the weather was perfect. This was my first riding holiday and there is so much to say, the riding was very varied, wonderful long canters on sandy tracks, walking through Valleys and Forests, the food was lovely, but it was the people who made it very special, our guide was so good, I was made to feel very safe and the horses were amazing, very well schooled and cared for, I didn't want to come home, I would recommend this holiday to any level of ability, the ride is catered for everyone. I will return.

Praia Grande

Reviewed By PPCI-BG - Italy

Un’altra delle belle spiagge di orto Covo, anche questa racchiusa tra scogliere e con bella sabbia e acqua limpida. Essendo al limitare del paese è più servita di altre con anche un bagnino ma anche più frequentata. Comunque bella e meritevole di una sosta balneare.

This is a spectacular place to hike. The ocean views are magnificent and the wildflowers equally as beautiful. An added bonus was watching a man fish from high up on a cliff!

Posto ben attrezzato e facile da raggiungere. I ragazzi del centro, tutti giovani, sempre molto cortesi e professionali. Ho fatto il corso insieme ai miei 2 figli di 4 e 6 anni. Tutti siamo riusciti a stare in piedi su almeno un onda. Meraviglioso. I corsi collettivi sono alle 11 e alle 15 e durano 2 ore. In inglese o portoghese. Se i bimbi non parlano 1 delle 2 lingue ... può essere un problema se vanno da soli. Il costo è di 40€ a persona.
