Manta Rota beach is deep, long and popular. You can drive straight to the beach as it is here that the lagoon of the Ria Formosa finally comes to an end. Consequently, access to the car park gets very busy in peak season. However, there is always plenty of room on the beach. Walking left along Manta Rota beach, the next beach you come to is Lote, but you can actually walk all the way to Vila Real and the Guardiana River - the border with Spain - if you have a lot of time on your hands. Walking right, you come to the beach at Fábrica and eventually to the end of the Manta Rota peninsula, where the sea once again enters the lagoon of the Ria Formosa.

Busy in summer, but Manta Rota beach also has some life right through the year.

Access to Manta Rota beach

Access to the beach at Manta Rota is on foot from the big car park at the back of the beach; so, yes, you can drive right to it. A concrete path from the town and wooden footbridges over the dunes from the car park take you to the beach.
