One of the best beaches around Lagos. Even in the mid-season still empty and nice. Funnily, there's a train station next to it so you can literally get off the train on the beach:)

Beautiful beach. Campimar restaurant has the best shrimp around. Wonderful staff. Great atmosphere during the day, with all the surfers around. And a lovely relaxed restaurant of an evening. Fantastic place to see the lovely sunsets.

If looking for quiet stroll (for as many miles as you care ) then this is the place for you. Clean beaches with friendly people.

It never fells crowded either swimming or sunbathing. it's clean and well maintained. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants at regular intervals. And free parking.....what more do you need for a day at the beach!

One of the best beaches in the Algarve. You can walk from the town almost to Alvor - takes a good hour each way, although you can get the bus to the Meia Praia stop. Upside, fabu;ous beach and a few beach restaurants. Downside - despite the signs saying no dogs, there are always dogs with and without owners.

This must be one of the mot spectacular beaches in the world! 5km of non-stop soft warm sand. I don't think there was a single pebble along its whole length. Plenty of beach bars along the whole length. I was amazed it was not busier.

I am biased, I live here, but it is a beautiful long sandy beach. Safe, clean and has many good bars and restaurants. We do travel to other countries for our holidays, but always find ourselves saying our beach at home is better. Really, Lagos and Meia Praia beach is a wonderful holiday destination.
