Praia da Rocha is the beach and built up area on the Atlantic Ocean which is the southern section of the municipality of Portimão, Algarve, southern Portugal. It is an expanse of fine sand punctuated by huge boulders which give the beach its name - Rocha!

Portimão is the second biggest city in the Algarve, Portugal, and famous for its fresh fish restaurants, grilled sardines being the most famous dish. One of the most well known beaches in the Algarve is Praia da Rocha and there are numerous others nearby. Praia da Rocha was the first resort to be developed on Portugal's Algarve. It now consists of numerous multi storey hotels, shops, bars and restaurants perched on a cliff top running along the edge of the beach.

The small airport located near Portimão does not see scheduled traffic. The nearest airport is in Faro 70 kilometres away, which in turn is well connected with many scheduled, charter and discount airlines serving the airports from Northern Europe. Eva Bus offers connection via a shuttle to the bus terminal in Faro. By boat Naviera Armas offers a weekly service to Funchal on Madeira island, continuing onwards to Las Palmas on Gran Canaria departing Sunday at noon.
