Busier than the rest of the beaches we went to but mainly Because it’s the easiest one to access from Lagos. Still beautiful just not quite as stunning as beaches a short drive away. Still went several times and you can walk through several coves...More

Amazing beach and not too overcrowded. Lovely warm waters, golden sand and amazing scenery with the rock formations.

A really good beach right next to the town, easy access and facilities close by. You can hire Kayaks (guided tours of the near by sea caves) here and there are cafes and restaurants too.

Town side & opposite the castle. Small beach but you can always find a space and linked to other even smaller beaches. Sea tends to be clearer in the morning and then a bit seaweedy later🤦🏻‍♂️ Couple of beach & snacks bars with the usual...More

Praia da Batata beach is gorgeous tucked neatly between the cliffs & is located close to Lagos. It’s very safe for children due to it being protected from the winds & tides. It sits next door to Fort Ponta da Bandeira .

A really nice & clean small sandy beach with the distinctive rock formations common to the region. Leads onto the Praia do Pinhao and is an easy stroll from the shops & town of Lagos

This is really a beautiful beach area: very accessible, in terms of proximity to the historic centre and in terms of stairs down to the sand. I went at sunrise and had the entire place virtually to myself! Really stunning!

To visit the beach? Well, ideally when there are very few other people about. I was there over December and January and although I did see a few people out swimming, I had the place virtually to myself. I used to go early... More
