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. Plan my Aljezur trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Arrifana Beach reviews
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.
