“Tiny secluded beach below an excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2015

Lovely little beach that is very quiet out of season. Great cliff-top walks, and a super fish restaurant up above the beach, with fantastic views across Lagos, Meia Praia Beach, and out to sea

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2015

Great beach to walk to from Lagos. Very quiet in February and at high tide very little beach remains.

“No1 Beach in the Algarve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2015

This is, without saying, one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world. Pristine sand, clean, blue water, lovely rock formations... We were sitting for hours alone on the beach in awe of the beauty.
But I bet that during the winter it gets really crowded.

“Astonishing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2015

Nestled between cliffs, Camilo Beach is really 2 beaches connected by a tunnel through the rock. Camilo Beach is accessed by a staircase with 200 steps. Before starting the descent enjoy the scenery: it’s stunning!

Very close and with access from the same road, lays the Ponta da Piedade, an impressive rock formation, with cut and caves dug by the sea. This is one of the symbols of the region, which can be admired in its entirety on a boat tour, traveling around the interior of the caves and small deserted beaches embedded in the rocks.
Both this places are well worth a visit. The views are astonishing!

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014

If you don't mind going up and down alot of steps and your knees can handle it, this place is well worth a visit. The views are amazing! We did the steps with our 3 year old and managed just fine. No one was on the beach so he had all of the sand to himself which he loved. Very peaceful and a wonderful spot for photos.
