Small beach in Algarve Portugal, Praia do Evaristo Beach is unlike all the others. Not a long sandy beach, no high cliffs just plenty of low rock formations creating a labyrinth on the beach. And at high tide, the waves come crashing into them. I think this is the best beach for meditation in the Algarve. Below is my guide to help you plan your visit.

Why visit Evaristo Beach in Portugal? Video
Evaristo is not the most famous of the beaches in Portugal. It does not have the drama or the color.
However, it does offer a splendid show at high tide.
The area is cover with low rocks, on which the waves come crashing and explode in the air.
We stayed a whole hour just sitting and watching. But I could have stayed longer, it was so relaxing!
Below is a short video to show you the action:

Access to Praia do Evaristo Beach
Praia do Evaristo in a small beach, but it has all the facilities.
Because there are no high cliffs, there are far fewer steps to reach the sand.
The beach is actually famous because of its restaurant which attracts fish and seafood lovers.
The beach has golden sand and low ochre cliffs.
Visiting at high tide
The particularity of the beach and its surroundings are the labyrinth of rocks on the ground.
It is great for kids and adults alike to explore all those pools and rock formations.
And thanks to the fact that it is further away from Albufeira and a little isolated, it has a lot of charm.
I think the best part is to walk the side of the beach at high tide to admire the waves crashing on those rocks.
It is a mesmerizing spectacle. I could have stayed there for hours!!!
Below is a series of photos of the crashing waves.
Evaristo Beach Restaurant
The local restaurant is quite well-known in the area.
It offers seafood and fresh fish, which is perfect with the view.
It was closed at the time I visited, but I wish I could have enjoyed it.
On the picture below, it is at the bottom of stairs with the big windows.
