Praia da Cordoama is one of several beaches that form a long sandy stretch along the coast just west of Vila do Bispo. Cordoama is by far the longest of these beaches but at low tide this doesn't matter as it joins together with neighbouring Castelejo and Barriga to form a huge sandy beach.

All these beaches are part of the beautiful coastline that makes up the Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina Natural Park. As such they have not succumb to the ravages of tourism and are largely unspoilt. However, despite its wild and remote feel Cordoama is a Blue Flag beach meaning there are plenty of facilities here, including a seasonal lifeguard service.

Cordoama and its neighbouring beaches are well known surf spots and all pick up the big Atlantic swells that roll in here throughout the year.
