Camilo Beach, Lagos

(4.6/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
The secluded, golden sand of Camilo Beach, surrounded by Baroque-like cliffs and grottos, features a soft ocean floor as well as precipices with mysterious alleyways. Nestled at the bottom of a cliff, the small beach can be accessed either by descending more than 240 stairs or by boat. Spread your towel across the warm sand and catch some rays, and swim in the calm turquoise waters, sheltered from strong winds. At the top of the cliffs you'll see a restaurant, where you can try some freshly caught fish while taking in the wide open views of the ocean.

  • With a small flaw, the have to go down the stairs until you reach the beach, but is worth the effort to be able to contemplate a wonder of nature, which, with the beach of Ponta da Piedade in fills the soul. A beach at the beach and nature lovers.

  • The paria is small and has access by a wide wooden staircase, but worth getting down to the sand, surrounded by high cliffs. A very nice visual. Worth the visit.

  • It is a beautiful between rocks, but very small Cove in high season is not fit. It is advisable to go early.

  • Fantastic small cove with a small beach and a tunnel through the rocks to another beach. Crystal clear water and clean sand. There's a fish restaurant at the top by the car park too.
  • Very nice beach! With different rock formations etc. (I would recommend going through the opening in the cliffs, because the beach there is not as crowded) But in the noon the flood came and the sun was gone.
  • Great beach, beautifully maintained and very friendly as well as authentic bodyguards that will take time to make sure, you wont miss any insiders!
  • Really nice and cosy beach. It can get very crowded during high tight. The view is splendid, so that selfie is gonna look great.
  • Beautiful but tiny beach. In August people squeezed like sardines, so I didn't enjoy it. Amazing views from the cliffs and good restaurant nearby.
