Cofete is accessible by car but for comfort a 4x4 would be better as it is about 40 minutes on dirt track. It is a fantastic beach, not many people around and you can walk for miles. The sea can be a little unpredictable and is not advisable to swim in unless you are a confident swimmer, there are no lifeguards there either. In the village of Cofete there is a bar but not much else. Enjoy!

With regards to Cofete and other places off road in Ferte a 4x4 is the best bet, but insurance is a bit of a problem most companies class off tarmac as off road. You will certainly find the road to Cofete an "interesting" experience.
With regards to the sun beds most sunbed beaches tend to be textile there are a few as woody has listed depends really on where you are staying as to which is better. Not a sunbed person myself prefer to lie on the beach or in [8D]a*sheep pen*
There are some photos of the Cofete area via my website.

I have reached Cofete by Seat Leon... no problem.
But if you go to Cofete please drive carefully, I have seen one crashed car there. Road to Cofete is really dangerous. Good Luck :)

I agree with you James that it is a very good beach. I like all the places and beach around it and Each one is quite different from the other geographically . I'd really like to check out them.

It has to be said again that if you intend going to Cofete beach, then please watch that dirt track road. There are some hairpin bends and whn you meet another car coming the opposite direction it can get a little scary. The wife will never ever go back again!!

As for the beach! yesr its a beautiful clean, unpopulated beach and great for sun bathing and walks, but NOT for swiming.  The seas are rough around that coast and the water undertow is very strong even relatively close in to the shore.

If you do venture over, also remember the minute you leave the main road and get onto that dirt track road, you are not covered with the rental company/Insurance so please note that.  Even a 4x 4 is not exempt from leaving the tarmac  :o

If you do go, enjoy and good luck!
