Praia da Marinha Beach - Portugal

Ocre coloured cliffs are a trademark of the coves of the central Algarve, as are the amazing rock formations and clear aquamarine waters. However, with the possible exception of Praia Dona Ana in Lagos, nowhere are these rocks as spectacular as at Praia da Marinha. Over the millennia the ocean has carved the limestone cliffs here into various arches, caves and pinnacles making this one of the most photographed beaches on the coast. The good news is that although the small cove at Marinha is not particularly remote it is rarely too busy thanks to the steep set of steps leading down to the beach.
