Car rental Praia Da Rocha

Praia da Rocha is a beautiful beach along the Atlantic Ocean, located in the city of Portimao in Southern Portugal. It is not far from the marina in the city. Since 2005, the Praia da Rocha has hosted the Mundialito de Futebol de Praia, a beach soccer tournament. It is a bustling holiday resort and a major tourist center since the nineteenth century.

Also located at the Praia da Rocha is the Fort of Santa Catarina, known as the Forte de Santa Catarina in Portuguese. It is a fort that defended local settlements as well as the estuary of Rio Arade. It was built during King Philip III’s reign. The site was first occupied by a shrine that was dedicated to Santa Catarina de Alexandria. Those who walk into the fort will see a Gothic-style door that still exists from the shrine.

A long wooden walkway lines the beach, which is filled with numerous restaurants, cafes, bars, and small boutiques. It is one of the best places in Portugal to really experience beach life.

The beach is located 51.61 kilometers from the Faro Airport (FAO).
