Praia do Salto

Luckily you don't always need to drive dozens of kilometres along narrow roads or long walks to get to a nude beach. Praia do Salto is very close to a tourist town in Alentejo, but cliffs provide enough privacy.

Last visited: april 2015


How to get there

Praia do Salto is just 1 km north of Porto Covo following the road that goes along the coast. There are several unpaved parking areas between the town and the beach. Probably the most difficult part to get there is to find it. The signs are on the edge of the cliffs and it is not easy to read them from the road. Nevertheless, if you get wrong you may have to walk a bit more from your car, but this is all.
To go down to the beach you have to use the stairs carved on the rocks. It is a long but easy and safe way down.

The beach

Strange sandy beach, wider (80 m) than long (30 m). It is one of the series of beaches and coves surrounded by vertical cliffs typical on this section of the Alentejo coastline. At low tide, you can walk into the main Porto Covo beach (textile) to the south.
At the foot of the cliffs there are some cavities in the rocky walls and two little waterfalls. One of them have been used to create a kind of natural shower. Something you don't expect in an unspoilt beach.
This is a big surf beach, so be careful if you decide to go for a swim.

Facilities

Nothing in the beach, but it is very close to the town.

Nudism

I have only been in Praia do Salto on a cloudy April day. A man walking his dog was the only person in the beach, and he was obviously clothed (because of the low temperature). But the sign in the path to the stairs clearly indicates that this is one of the only 8 official nude beaches in Portugal.

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
