Backed by dramatic cliffs rising over the golden sands, Arrifana Beach makes an intimate-yet-breathtaking getaway. The cliffs provide some protection from the winds, so waves stay small and manageable. For this reason, the Blue Flag beach is particularly popular with surfers and body surfers. Look up and spot Castle Arrifana, the 12th-century ruins thought to be the one-time residence of a prince. Look for ruins from several mosques nearby, too. Steps provide access to the beach from the village, where you can go for food and accommodation. Note that the steps are somewhat steep. You'll find restrooms, showers, and lifeguards on site. Planning Aljezur trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Arrifana Beach Reviews
toller strand abolue empfehlung leider etwas zu voll aber das war klar zur saison . ich würde immer wieder kommen more »great beach abolue recommendation unfortunately a little too full but that was clear to the season. I will keep coming back
Einfach top, saubere Strand, sauberes Wasser, und nicht ubermässlich voll. Es ist sehr zu empfehlen, Immer wieder gerne. more »Simply top, clean beach, clean water, and not completely full. It is highly recommended, always gladly.
Another beach with spectacular views. Access is down a windy corkscrew road with limited parking. We parked at the top and walked down. Gently sloping beach makes is relatively safe but waves are quite big here. It is very popular with surfers.
Amazing well known beach. Popular spot for surfing but way too busy in summer. It gets very often small waves and it is very good for beginners, however sometimes the beach break works nicely and there are nice left and rights waves. Impressive cliff and nice restaurants around. A spot to sleep near by can be found easy and when Kangaroo point is working... the surf in on fire here. Love it.
