Praia do Barranco das Belharucas

Maritime beach

The Barranco das Belharucas Beach is to be found at the westward end of Falésia Beach (which extends over kilometres eastwards as far as Vilamoura), and is separated from Olhos de Água by rocks that may be skirted round at low tide. Its odd name comes about due to the cliff at this point, known locally as the "barranco" (ravine) which is sought out by belharucas (European bee-eaters), one of the species of birds that nests here.

Difficult to get to along a dirt track, or alternatively via the direct entranceway for guests at the Sheraton Pine Cliffs Hotel, this calm beach is well-maintained and with a diverse range of sports and aquatic activities.
