This thin but long sandstrip is called Prainha das Poças, or 'puddles little beach'. If you are looking to enjoy the shoreline, you should time yor visit well, because the sand disappears with the high tide. It sits east of Ponta de Sagres, and is not very popular, which means it is an alternative to the bigger, more crowded ones in the area. It is however somewhat difficult to access, because you must go down the rocky cliffs, and be aware of the tides!
