in The Algarve

Descend 33 shallow steps, then take a lift through the sandstone and walk through an underground tunnel to reach this hidden bar opening onto a little beach wedged between soaring cliffs. Sangria, punches, cocktails and champagne are highlights of the drinks list. DJs spin nightly, when dancing takes place on the sand and the cliffs are illuminated with neon lights.

Barbecued fish is the speciality of its restaurant, along with classic cataplanas (seafood stew).
