This beach got its name, Praia da Ponta Ruiva, because of the orange rock formation at the south edge of the sandstrip. With the high tide, it becomes an islet, and the sand area diminishes a lotsome. With the right conditions, you can also access another sand pocket. This unsupervised beach is a bit remote, but is is a favourite for watersports, and it offers a great peaceful atmosphere.
