The beach is contained within the picturesque village of Olhos d´Água. The local fishermen continue to occupy the eastern end of the beach with their fishing boats and loading ramp. The famous freshwater springs in the sand gave both the beach and the village their name (olhos d´água). These are visible by the shoreline at low tide. But Olhos d´Água is also noted for its limestone cliffs, since, for those coming from the east, this is the first beach where, for example, you can observe marine life between tides: limpets, topshells, buckshot barnacles, sea anemones and brightly coloured seaweed. The jagged rock formations give rise to isolated groups of rocks, undercutting, arches, cavities and small sheltered coves, especially at the western end of the beach. Because of its urban and tourist nature, this is a very popular beach and there is a central square with outdoor cafés and restaurants where you can sit and contemplate the sea, as well as a small promenade along the seafront, lined by palm-trees.
