About Ribeira do Cavalo Beach

Praia da Ribeira do Cavalo Beach, also known as Praia da Pedreira do Cavalo Beach, discloses an extensive sand located at the bottom of a mountain valley. It's inside a cove. At the west end one finds a stream with the same name of the beach. To the east there's a smaller sandy area. Several islets stand out of the sea water. The access follows a trail coming from an existing stone quarry on top of the cliff or down the stream bed when its dry.

What People Are Saying

"Our jeep tour of Arrabida was EXCELLENT. The natural park is an area of outstanding beauty and the drive was very scenic. The stops were very well planned too and we could marvel at the landscape from great view points whilst Antonio was explaining all about the area, the fauna and flora, the formation of the park and rocks, the local convent and even the cork trees and industry. You could tell that he had a lot of knowledge and passion and we definitely learnt a lot that day. It was very interesting and also really good fun. A great way to discover Arrabida by jeep with an experienced company. I would definitely recommend this tour."
