Rockaway beach, Azores (freely translated).
Certainly the most secret of all top 20 beaches of Portugal.
It's the only sandy beach in Europe bordered by a banana plantation, covering the clifftop.
Water temperature in early September: 24º C.
Almost all visitors come from Ribeira das Tainhas, a few come from the county capital, Vila Franca do Campo.
Not much more people can say that "Its not hard, not far to reach,
we can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach".
