Create an itinerary including Praia do Camilo
The secluded, golden sand of Praia do Camilo, 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.

  • I guessed I saved the best for last. Lots of cool rock formations, smallish beach. There was just walking room around all the bodies by the time I left late afternoon. Nice sand and clear water...

  • Great little beach. Get early so you can grab a spot in the sand: it gets really busy around 10:30-11:00. Great spot for snorkeling: loads of fish big and small, amazing spot to swim around the rocky coast and see fish swimming happy!
  • Lovely beach near Lagos. Can be crowded quickly, better to go early in the morning to have a good spot. In High tide the beach isn't very big as well. You can snorkeling easily in this clear water! I trully love this beach
  • The most beautiful beach but gets really busy.
  • One of the best scenery from the top of the hill. But the beach is too way hyped. Overcrowded ( people fighting for a spot) and in the middle of the afternoon, the high tide almost makes the beach disappear. Not very good for swimming, too many seaweeds, but very calm waters.
  • The place was beautiful however there were A LOT of tourists and made the water very dirty. Would recommend to check it out without going into the water.
