Porto Covo beaches - Portugal

Southwest Alentejo was one of my options for my holidays this month. I've never been to this area of the country but I'm sure sooner or later I'll spend a few days there.  
These are just two of the beautiful beaches in the region. The cards were sent by Anne Silva and Paulo.

Island beach is situated on the canal that links the inland to the Pessegueiro Island. This is a place blessed by nature, used throughout the centuries as a refuge for the boats that sailed the difficult Alentejo Coast. 
This is also a spot chosen for centuries by the local avifauna as a dormitory and nesting. 
The island, accessible by boat, has several interesting archaeological vestiges, specially from the Roman occupancy period. 
In the cliff next to the beach is situated the Pessegueiro Fort, built in the 17th century. - in:

Burrinho Beach is comprised by rocky formations. Its sand only shows itself to the bathers by the low tide period. During high tide, the sand and rocks get fully immersed. - in:
