Last year we got to know the beautiful town Lagos and its breathtaking beaches during our holiday in the Algarve. The locals are really friendly and speak good english so we've decided to repeat the dose this year.
Meia Praia is the biggest beach of Lagos and offers a great variety of activities and beach bars. For us however, the beach's highlight is a very friendly and skilled masseuse called Guida Vieira – she works in a little orange tent, not far from Linda Beach Bar. Just the best massage I have ever experienced! Last year we unfortunately had discovered Guida's massages only in the end of our stay, so this year we have booked some treatments right away and got an awesome price for the lot. I didn't want the massage to take an end – heavenly! I even felt younger! :-) Thank you so much Guida!
We are definitely coming back to this lovely place.

The most amazing long stretch of fine sandy beach. Quite windy at times, and almost deserted even on sunny days, but to be expected for the time of year. Gently shelving, so even though the waves can be strong still OK for younger children.

Spent a pleasant October afternoon on this huge beach. Clean sands and easy parking. Not sure what August would be like, but lovely in the autumn sunshine.

We didn't really spend time on it, but could see it was fantastically long and lots of tourists spent time here.

We walked from the marina area of Lagos to this beach and were pleasantly surprised at the length and cleanliness of this beach. We sat for over an hour absolutely mesmerised at the waves coming in and then walked back along the beach to marina area - the beach was spotless!
