Definitely walk to whole stretch, you'll be amazed!
But do prepare and take water and a hat, as it is 4kms one way!!

Meia Praia has different beaches all in one; on one end, closer to Lagos, there is the rather busy stretch, then you come to a calmer stretch, then a modest nudist bit, and at the very end a nature reserve!
Perfect for those motivated morning/ sunset runs.

A very large and lovely quiet beach, with excellent vistas; very clean; although not easy to find from Odiaxerre

Beautiful clean beach, there were actually people swimming in the sea on the day I visited- very brave I thought!

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.
