Praia da Marinha

Algarve, Portugal

There’s a reason why this slip of sand on Portugal’s southern coast is routinely named one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. A jaunt down the steep stairway reveals small, sandy inlets that shrink with the rising tide and orange limestone cliffs that provide shade to sweltering sunbathers. Not content to just work on your tan? Snorkel in search of sea anemones and starfish or take a boat tour of nearby caves and arch-shaped rock formations.
