Location & how to get here
Praia do Amor can easily be reached by foot. Walking from the center beach (Praia do Centro), simply head right and keep on walking for approx. 500 meters until you reach Praia do Amor. The walk is best done when the tide is low as during high tide the access is difficult.
An alternative approach is to walk along the main street "Avenida dos Golfinhos" and then turn off at the "Rua Praia do Amor" and walk until the parking area on top of Praia do Amor. From there, one can walk down to the beach using the stairs.
