Praia da Batata, Lagos

4.5
#34 of 83 in Outdoors in Lagos
Praia da Balaia is a small satellite beach at the eastern end of its larger neighbour, Praia Santa Eulália, on the Atlantic south coast of the Algarve. Its is within the municipality of Albufeira and is 3.1km east of the town of Albufeira and 1.7km west of the coastal village of Olhos de Água.DescriptionThe beach is set into a small cove formed by recesses in the low cliffs and rock formations. The beach also includes several further sandy recesses running eastwards, some of which are only accessible during the very low tides. These smaller beaches are also known as Praia do Spout Silvas, a name rarely used. The western part of Balaia can be accessed via a set of wooden boardwalks and steps which lead down the side of the cliffs from the Holiday developments that lay to the north of this part of the shoreline. The steps are often in a poor state of repair due to storm damage.

  • We went down to this beach to catch the sunrise which was awesome and it was a cool beach with caves to other beaches, close to the old town so handy to accomodation  more »
  • Right in the center of town, this beach is sheltered and calm and tranquil waters. Pretty little watch at the end of August to the famous "bath 29". Easy access.

  • A really nice & clean small sandy beach with the distinctive rock formations common to the region. Leads onto the Praia do Pinhao and is an easy stroll from the shops & town of Lagos  more »

  • Great using coffee in the bar above overlooking batata beach. But if you are s local you will find the white coffees a little expensive at 2.50 each
  • My 4 year old loved playing here. It's a pity that now it's too cold to swim in the water in November. Would be great to be here in the summer.
  • Lagos beaches are clean and wonderful.
  • Very small beach with very less crowd. Main attraction are the rocks and small small caves. If u are a beach lover and spend time alone, away from traffic and market sound then dis is not the place. It's just beside the road and there are restaurants all​ around. Plus point is , washrooms are very near.
  • Beautiful scenery, good Sandy swimming beach. Close to the city center, so a bit busy with tourists, families and other people. Free showers, drinking water and toilets.
