Off the beaten track and north of Sagres is where you can find our next Beach of the Week, Praia do Telheiro, a secret beach that is full of wildlife, good waves and gorgeous scenery.

If you are looking for a beach with lots of facilities and activities you are probably not going to enjoy Praia do Telheiro, but if what you are looking for is a secluded, wild and rugged spot that offers some privacy, then this is your kind of beach! Especially for surfers and nature lovers this is a must-visit. Also bird watchers will have a blast here since there are lots of different birds of prey in the area and especially falcons are quite common.

Due to the fact that the beach is so quiet and hidden, there are no life guards on duty which means you have to be extra careful when you go into the water and remember to always keep a safe distance from the cliffs, as there can be rocks falling down onto the beach.
