Great for families, never gets too crowded. Very good beach bar and restaurants. Lifeguards and also first aid center. Sunloungers can be hired for 1/2 or full days at a reasonable cost. Free car parking.

A beautiful beach with two great restaurants. We visited in early September and it was busy but by no means crowded. A lot of locals. Plenty of space and beautiful views. The beach was clean, the water very shallow and lovely to swim in.

A long stretch of golden and white sands. When we were there twice, the waters were calm. To the right are cliffs with different coloured stratifications. You can walk here from Ponta da Piedade and carry on to Praia da Luz. There is a cafe and a restaurant, toilets were shut at this time of year.

Nice beach but go early if you want to rent sun beds and/or umbrella. We arrived at noon and they were all in use or had been reserved. The sun was super strong, so we regretted not getting there in the morning.

We walked here from Lagos town for a yoga class. We arrived a little early and got to enjoy an hour on the beach. We went for a swim in the waves which was really fun, although there was quite a lot of seaweed which isn’t my favourite. Busy beach but not too crowded. Toilet block and beach bar was really handy. Lots of parking too. Beautiful spot to watch the sun go down.

We had walked around the coast from Ponta da Piedade grutas to explore. We had 🤿 snorkel etc. We walked along the beach to the left towards the boulders at the far end, found a gap and went for a 🤿. Within 50 ft of the beach there was a natural shelf with a lot of sea life worth seeing 😉

It is so beautiful, the scenery, the water, the rocks, that I want it just for myself! Don’t come :-)

Lovely little beach with gorgeous red rocks towering above. Breaking waves with rock pools at the far end. Sunbeds with canopies available to hire for the day. Two beach restaurants serving drinks and food make for a great day. Take your high factor sun cream!

I could never make a ranking of the beaches of Lagos, I love them all. This beach is easily accessible, with ample and convenient parking. There are 2 bar restaurants right on the beach, in a truly enviable position. The beach is beautiful, perfect for surfing ... and if you climb on the adjacent cliffs, with a comfortable walk, you will enjoy breathtaking views ...

Flanked by tall cliffs, the lovely Porto de Mós Beach is like a long tongue of golden sand, bathed by a sea of calm, shimmering waters that blur between the blues and the greens. To the west, a walk along the cliff leads you to the viewpoint of Atalaia, from which you can see the whole of the Algarve coast in the direction of Sagres and a splendid view over the village of Luz. The current accessibility and support for citizens with reduced mobility that complete the excellent support infrastructures make this beach, located only 2 kms from the city of Lagos, one of the most important in the Algarve.
