For the second year in a row we strike on the amazing beach of Praia da Rocha for our Beach2Volley Spring Camp. Located approximately 70 km. east of Faro, it is considered as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve. The beach stretches along the length of the town and there is a pleasant promenade that makes the entire beach easily accessible. Further along the coast the sandstone cliffs hide small coves and quieter beaches, ideal for those wishing to escape the crowds.
Our beach volleyball nets are set up on the western side of the beach in front of the Spot3 Lounge Beachbar. The bar has a very relaxed vibe and also serves the best cocktails in the area. The Cabreira Avenua which runs along the top of the beach is full of restaurants, cafes and shops and is particularly lively at night with a variety of bars and clubs to choose from. There are all sorts of water sports available, from surfing to jet-skiing and a variety of boat trips that leave from the marina on the eastern side of the beach. Praia da Rocha is centrally located for lots of attractions the Algarve has to offer.
Visitors to southern Portugal will discover that eating out provides great value, as food and drink are significantly cheaper than back at home. In Praia da Rocha there is a wide selection of restaurants that cover all styles of cuisine and dining, which include Portuguese, English, Indian, Chinese, Italian and Spanish. The evening meal is an important part of the Beach2Volley experience. Every night groups of people go out to dine together to refill the energy that was lost during the day. Of course we have some insider tips for the best restaurants in the area.
Praia da Rocha and the Algarve have long hot summers and pleasant spring and autumns. Perfect for organising activity-based camps. The sea waters of south Portugal are clean but cold as they are feed by the Atlantic Ocean, instead of the warmer Mediterranean Sea. A quick splash after training feels amazing and is good for the muscles as well. The beach of Praia de Rocha is supervised by lifeguards and there are no dangerous currents.
For all participants it is best to fly into Faro, which is the main international airport in the Algarve. From there you can order a shuttle or taxi towards Praia da Rocha, Portimao. The second best option is to land in Lisbon and from there take the train towards Faro.
