Animal lovers and four-legged friends will appreciate Bau Beach, a yellow-sand beach with calm, blue water. This dog-friendly spot allows you to let your pet frolic in the sea and sand, without worrying about barking or bathroom habits bothering others. Amenities like the water-bowl service ensure your pup is well cared for. For human visitors, the sea is clear and quiet enough that you can look straight to the bottom, which is good because you wouldn't want to step on the sea urchins or starfish. In fact, the marine life here is quite active, so consider taking your snorkeling gear to explore. With plenty of space on the beach, it's easy to find your own spot. Keep in mind nudists frequent this destination due to its remoteness. Plan to visit Bau Beach during your Maccarese vacation using our convenient Maccarese trip planner.
