Praia de Vale Centeanes

This pleasant stretch of sand is situated at the bottom of high, steep cliffs similar to those at Carvoeiro just along the coast. Fortunately there is a shallow valley leading down to the beach at the eastern end making access fairly easy (even by wheelchair).

This is another Blue Flag beach so there are plenty of facilities for all the family including a seasonal lifeguard service. There is a cafe near the beach entrance along with toilets plus a hut selling ices and cold drinks during the summer.

With the high cliffs offering shelter from the wind Vale de Centeanes beach is a haven for sun-worshippers. The cliffs themselves are a point of interest and worth a closer look where they have been eroded into unusual shapes. The snorkeling is also good around here.
