This beach is quite sheltered so it’s nice to come here if it’s a windy day if it may be too wild on Meia Praia! Nice soft golden sand and not too big or wild so it’s safe for kids. Just be mindful of all...More

This is a lovely beach, easy to gain access to, however due to stairs it might be a struggle if you have a wheelchair or baby’s pram

This beach is amazing, but you have to work for it a little bit! Stairs down are easy, back up they're hard! When you first land on the beach it's absolutely packed. If you walk through to the next beach it's a bit less busy....More

Great place to visit for the views and the unusual cliff setting. No good for people who have trouble with stairs. Perhaps arrive early and check the tide - when crowded and with the tide coming in, you quickly run out of room!

A lot of stairs down but definitely worth the hike. Spent several hours here. You can walk through the cave to another small little beach as well.

Were driving through Lagos and missed our first beach on GPS so ended up here accidentally and wow aren't we glad we did! There are really no bad beaches in Algarve so I'm sure our initial option would've been fine, but Camilo was truly one...More

Many places to book, starting from Marina right along the way as far as the old town and even in the old town. Usually also 5-6 small boats waiting for customers located just across/ above the taxi rank in town.

Yes, you can take the Number 2 bus from downtown Lagos. Just ask the driver to tell you where to get off.
