Praia da Adraga

Just around the corner from Praia Grande is another local favourite Praia da Adraga. This sandy little cove is backed by high cliffs with a deep valley winding down to the beach. The beach here is usually quieter than the better known beaches in the area and is mostly the preserve of locals. However, it can get quite busy at weekends when parking is at a premium.

Adraga is a fairly wild spot being located just a few kilometres north of Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point on mainland Europe. Formations of jagged rocks brood just offshore and the beach itself is home to various grottoes and tunnels making for plenty of exploring. Despite its wild setting there are facilities at Adraga including a restaurant down in the cove.
