Walking on the beach!

5 km of beautiful beach from lagos to the river of alvor. Very quiet in the winter with only some wooden restaurants. For people who love beach and sea.

Meia Praia has beautiful sandy beaches, a few nice restaurants and can be accessed on foot from one of the many local hotels, or if you're staying a little further away it has a train station which has twice hourly connections to Lagos.

We stayed in Condominio Do Mar in F. Kellys Apartment (Facebook MeiaPraiaLagos) who also supplied 2 bikes (free) and this allowed us to cycle all around Meia Praia. The area is so scenic, the beach is something else and the cycle route along the train track where you can pass the Lagos Train. Overall, the best holiday destination ever.
