Meia Praia, Lagos
(4.5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Soak up the sun and splash around in the Atlantic at Meia Praia, a long, wide, golden sand beach at the edge of an estuary. Hailed as a Blue Flag beach for impeccable cleanliness, the 4.5 km (2.8 mi) seafront features summer water sports, year-round surfing and body boarding, and nature walks. To cool off or regain strength after a good swim, choose from among a selection of bars and restaurants along the coast offering fresh, local fish. Due to its length and width, this beach somehow never seems too crowded, even during peak season. Put Meia Praia at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lagos vacation builder.

  • Spend a lot if time here each year. Lovely place, visit Bar Quim for good cheap food. Avoid wandering into dunes unless into nudity! 
  • This was a fantastic beach very clean and very quiet if thats what you are looking for .the sunbeds were quite reasonable 10 euros for the day . 
  • A wider and longer super sandy beach very well maintained and clean. Beautiful and sometimes high waves a true swimming paradise.
