Praia da Marinha is located on the south coast of Portugal in the Lagoa Municipality and is one of the more popular beaches in this area. Once you walk down the stairs along the cliff you will find a small bar that serves cold drinks and some snacks. The true beauty of this place lays behind the first set of cliffs to the right. Here is where you will see the picturesque rocks standing tall in the turquoise water which calmly splashes onto the fine sand. This is a well known beach and chances are you won’t be alone, but the view from the top alone is still definitely worth a visit.
