Portuguese beaches: Três Castelos


Três Castelos is another area between our neighborhood beach, Vau, and the famous Praia da Rocha, going west.

Matter-of-fact, during low tide, you can walk the entire beautiful sandy stretch, all the way from Vau to the end of Praia da Rocha.

Três Castelos Beach

This beach’s name literally means the ‘Three Castles’ which refers to the three imposing rock structures that can be found some way past its waterline. It also encompasses several nearby facilities including restaurants, car park and public bathrooms.
