This is one of the best beaches in Portugal and those staying at AP Oriental Beach have the privilege of being right in front of this beautiful stretch of sand. The hotel has direct access to Praia da Rocha, making it a must during your stay. And not just because it’s so close to the hotel. That’s just one of the many benefits of staying at AP Oriental Beach.

Another of the main reasons why Praia da Rocha is a must is the beauty of its long stretch of sand, surrounded by cliffs and beautiful rock formations that leave no one indifferent.


It’s simply one of the most paradisiacal settings in our country.


Recently, according to data collected on Instagram and Tik Tok by tourism platform Holidu, Praia da Rocha is the Algarve’s most popular beach on social media, with 118,596 thousand hashtags on Instagram and 3.7 million views on Tik Tok.


This just goes to show that Praia da Rocha really is one of the Algarve’s most beautiful backdrops and the most popular place for social media photos and videos.

As well as its beauty, there is another reason why Praia da Rocha is one of Portugal’s most special beaches.


During the months of June and July, this beach is the stage for several renowned festivals, such as Afronation and Rolling Loud, which guarantee fun concerts for all visitors and residents of Portimão.
