Praia da Balança

Praia da Balança “Beach of the Scale” is located just nearby Ponta da Piedade. From the beach and looking East you can see the scale-shaped rock that gave name to the beach.

This is a natural and beautiful small beach, sandwiched between tall and steep cliffs, but with a complicated and dangerous access. It’s easier to appreciate the beauty of the beach using one of the many tourist boats that visit this coastal area.
