Just... just... enjoying this wonderful...More
One of the most popular coved, completely sheltered, surrounded -by-cliffs beaches in Lagos. Good parking and overlooked by sky-scraper hotels side-by-side with recession-ridden shells of apartment blocks. Nice cliff top walkng path about 30 minutes from central Lagos.
A lovely sandy beach for swimming and there’s definitely a variety of fish, for those interested in snorkeling. There’s a bar/restaurant on the beach however we never visited. There’s a also a shop close to the Carvi Hotel to anyone needing water or snacks or...More
Lovely sandy beach accessed via 100 steps! Nice protected bay so calm sea and good for swimming. There is a beach cafe and another couple of cafes up the hill but we didn't eat here. Interesting rock formations and caves to explore. Nicest beach we...More
The views will not disappoint! This beach is a sight to see and a great spot to have a picnic with friends and swim alongside the sandstone rocks! My friends and I went on a kayaking tour through them and it was definitely worth the...More
We drove 50 minutes here to see this and Ponta da Piedade
We loved the beach due to the lovely rocks and the fun in the waves
Also enjoyed the steps to the latter spot too and then found another cove to swim in
Around Lagos by Public Transport in May (15 Replies)
Hi, We will be visiting Lagos from 17th to 20th May and will be completely dependent on public transport for going around, hence I have quite a few questions regrading this as I am still trying to sort out our trip. I have quite a few confusions, this being our first time in Portugal! Therefore, I will be extremely grateful if any of you could kindly help me regarding these questions (apologies for asking so many questions!) 1) Does getting to the beaches at Praia Dona Ana, Ponta da...More

Hi cubsur, Many thanks for this, only you could have provided such detailed and clear advice and I was really hoping that you would see my post! Following your replies, I have a few more queries, hope you don't mind.. 1) Is it worth going to Cape St.Vincent and does the bus actually get to the tip and viewpoint mentioned in the websites? I can't see the sunset if I depend on the buses to get here from Lagos, right? 2) In general, even if I cover part of my journey by public...More
Praia Dona Ana (3 Replies)
Hi, we are coming over to Lagos in July and cannot wait. We are staying in accomodation on the Pont de Piedade close to Praia Dona Ana and Praia Camilo beaches. Could anyone tell us how far away from the centre of Lagos that is please? We won't be driving and just wanted to check that it is an easy walk. Thanks Kevin

Hi Kevin, Ponte da Piedade and Praia Dona Ana are about three quarters of a mile apart,Dona Ana being the closest to town and a fifteen minute walk into town (slightly longer on the uphill return journey.)The good news is that the tourist train stops at both locations;the bad news is that it doesn't run late at night if you are eating out in town.A taxi from town to Dona Ana will cost around €4. Hope this helps a little.

but love people watching, experiencing local cuisine/cafe's, and culture - well, honestly, spending 5 days in the Algarve is wasting your time if that's the goal. And Albufeira is the last place for that, no it has not changed for the better. And why on earth go there on a day tour to see the beaches?? since the school holidays will be over by Sept. 3rd - in central Europe yes, but not in Portugal. If you really want people watching, experiencing local cuisine/cafe's, and culture you have...More
