The beach and the views are simply gorgeous. By far one of the best beaches i've been to. The water was chilly despite being june. The little restaurant on the beach is perfect to grab a drink while soaking in the sun. To the right side (whilst facing the water) are gorgeous rock formations waiting to be explored.

Admittedly we stopped here but did not go down to this particular beach. It’s a great beach though. Very large and lots of space to move around. With cliffs all around (as is the norm in this area), the views are wonderful. It’s a close to the center of town so very accessible but is busier than the more secluded and smaller beach options farther south.

This beach was our "front yard" during our stay in Lagos. It is easy to walk down to and there is a place at the bottom that sells food. I have knee issues, but I had no trouble walking to the bottom and getting to the top if I took my time going up the steps. The flora is beautiful and there were great spots to take different photos. A few people meditating and running in the early morning. Loved it!

This beach is overrated. We went in July and naturally the beach was rammed, there was no shade left. The sand is quite course and the sea has lots of seaweed. There's much nicer beaches in the Algarve. The cliffs are really beautiful though.

Came many times. Was in October and November so was quiet. At times felt like it was a private beech. Sand quite course but wonderful all the same. Looking out at the rock outcrops could have been on Scaramanga’s island bolthole (for non James Bond fans, mean Krabi, Thailand). Rustic restaurant in the far corner serving very simple food and cold beers.

Dona Ana is a superb beach close to Lagos. The water is always very clean and transparent, the sand is great and full of interesting shells, and the atmosphere is quiet. It's perfect for families, as well as for young people willing to have a go with surfboards and other aquatic sports!

Beautiful beach with waves one day and calm the next- amazing how much the difference in weather can change this beach. The first day the waves were high and our excursion with kayaks was canceled. The next day it was calm and it looked like a completely different beach.

Beach is absolutely amazing. Clear water. Average size, therefore it may be over crowded sometimes.
Luckily the weather wasn't that good (sunny but interrupted by clouds most of the time), so Icould be there peacefully.
The scenery, well, absolutely divine. But i found the water a bit colder than usual. Maybe because the weather wasn't that pleased.

This is a beautiful sheltered beach to spend some time walking, swimming, shell collecting, or lying down and listening to the waves. I is accessible from the pathways on the cliff tops and down some steps or from the Dona Anna bus stop and down 94 steps (yes I counted), to the beach. There is a cafteria at the back of the beach, but it was closed when I was there.
Whichever way you go it is a steep climb back up to the top. My legs took a couple of days to get used to this. I love the beach so much that I am willing to persevere.

We are staying a month in the apartment right above the beach. Perfect location. Beautiful views off our balcony. The beach is nice and clean. Unfortunately we are here in February and the ocean is very cold. That being said my husband went in with west-suit vest and was ok. Not for me.
Beautiful setting it will not disappoint
