Photographer's Note

Hello friends,
Another photo on the beach of Manta Rota, I hope you enjoy this view.

Manta Rota Beach is a very extensive beach, connected to the village of Manta Rota that, despite all the tourist development in the last years, still conserves some of its original character of a fishermen village.
The beach is surrounded by golden dunes, specially in the western and in the eastern parts, given that the centre is filled with tourist infrastructures.
More frequented in the centre, one can still find peaceful and relaxed sites on the sides of the beach, a bit further from the central area.

Playa de Manta Rota

sta es una extensa playa asociada a la poblacin de Manta Rota, que an mantiene algo de su caracter original de tierra de pesca, aunque sea actualmente un importante centro turstico. El arenal delimita el sistema lagunar de Ria Formosa en la parte oriental. El cordn dunar es ancho especialmente en oriente y en occidente de la poblacin, ya que en el centro dominan los servicios tursticos. Pasadizos elevados llevan a los visitantes hasta el arenal. Una lnea refrescante de chopos marca el aparcamiento oriental desta playa. Menos frecuentada que la vecina zona balnear de Monte Gordo, ofrece an esquinas tranquilas sobretodo en los extremos del arenal.
