There are a number of lovely little coves along the coast between the industrial town of Sines and holiday resort of Porto Côvo. Praia do Serro da Águia is one such of these and perhaps the prettiest.

Like many of the beaches along this stretch of coast it is formed within a small rocky cove with sandstone cliffs to the back and sides. The sand is a pale golden colour while the sea is a crystal clear blue.

The beach is just far enough away from anywhere to not get busy, although at high tide it can become slightly cozy. Access is not too difficult with a good sized car park and a set of steps down a sloping section of cliff.

If the archetypal traditional Portuguese fishing village still exists then maybe Porto Côvo is this. Even the name translates as port of the fishing net. A jumble of whitewashed cottages, cobbled streets and pretty squares...
