Photographer's Note

Hello friends,
Another photo on the beach of Manta Rota, small lake created by the tide ,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

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