The beach is known for its limestone cliffs and sand dunes and is quieter than nearby Praia do Amando, which has the better surf.

Bordeira has the fantastic and very reasonably priced Restaurante do Cabrita which has great seafood, as well as toys for kids and live sea creatures in a saltwater tank.
