“Almost perfect”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

If it wasn't for the fact that the beach is very smal and that the sea has a rocky bottom, this beach would be close to perfect. Parking and snack-bar available (snack bar only opens during summer period) and the views are great.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We stayed for a week at the Dona Ana Garden, a small hotel almost right across the street from this beach, and besides its own charms, one of the things we liked about the hotel was being able to easily visit Dona Ana Beach. Since we visited in November, swimming wasn't on our agenda but we enjoyed just visiting this beach for the views, and a few minutes of relaxation and serenity every day. One day, however, was far from serene - a storm system brought huge swell and crashing waves; that was quite a sight to see!

“What a view!!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Although a small beach, it has an amazing view from the observation area and from the surrounding cliffs... I was lucky enough to be able to wake up to this wonderful view daily, seeing the rock formations are a must see when in Lagos

“sandy beach between rough rocks”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

praia dona ana is one of the nicest beaches at the algarve and very near to lagos. the panorama view is extraordinary and the water is crystalclear. the beach is easy reachable over a wooden stair. because lagos is near, it is better to arrive there in the morning time. there is no vegetation on the beach and a parasol and sunprotection is necessary. the steep coast behind the beach spends shadow, but sometimes the steep coast is dangerous, because big rocks fall down. it is better to stay away from these shady places. praia dona ana is a hotspot for nearly all the tourists in this area and is high frequentated during the whole day, but we can recomment this place very much.

A little difficult to find and the steps down were not best maintained but a lovely spot once down there.
