Praia do Canavial
A golden, surprisingly large beach the first one on the Porto de Mòs (Western) side of the Ponta da Piedade. It's main attraction stems from the fact it is hard to get to so it's usually quite empty. Take lots of rereshments as there are no facilities here.

Poorly signposted (as in there are no signposts) it's a bit of a bugger to find. By car you want to follow signs to Porto do Mos beach and at the last roundabout before you reach Porto do Mòs you need to take a left, follow the road as it meanders around a housing / villa estate and eventually you will (if lucky) find a small car parking area with a dirt track pointing ahead of you. Walk down the track and you will come to the cliffs overlooking the beach (with the Ponta da P on your left - where the photos shown below were taken) and see the steps leading down. Alternatively, you can park at Ponta da Piedade and take a pleasant cliff walk, heading west, where you will eventually see the beach.
