  • A little further than the praia da Batata, is accessed by a road in front of the barracks fire (Bombeiros) and small coastal path with stairs. Less crowded than elsewhere because you have to walk a little bit but the view is superb, cliffs and turquoise sea. Often waves...

  • There are a string of small beaches just south of the town that are worth a visit. Despite being only a few minutes walk away they do not have an urban feel. The cliffs protect you from the town. You ...  more »
  • You can't come here and not know it. Small and cozy with a fantastic energy was an unforgettable moment. I went with my son, 26 years, we take a cooler with drinks, snacks and spend the day it couldn't feel like leaving! The transparent water and cold!! The swimming of a Playa to another inside of caves of rocks .... no words!!!!! We spent beautiful moments!!!!

  • Beautiful sunrise. Amazing beach. Spent the entire day walking along the coast. Great place ti swim. Be aware of the sun!
  • Small beach close to central Lagos. Steep climb down but well maintained stairs and path. Beach is gravel with lots of flotsam and shells, so bring something comfortable to lay on. Small caves nearby to explore.
  • Great beach for a resort and nightlife scene in Algarve. There's a mega nightclub on the beach's boardwalk and a strip of bars and restaurants on the main street running parallel to the boardwalk overlooking the beach. The beach itself has some dramatic bluffs and cliffs you characteristic of an Algarve beach. There's plenty of resorts with lounge chairs and cafes right on the beach, so you don't need to bring anything if you don't want to .
  • One of the best beaches in Lagos. It can get crowded in the afternoon because it is not so big of a beach but the atmosphere is relaxed and there are caves to explore when the tide is low.
  • Smaller sister to Dona Ana, which is the next connecting beach over. This fact can be both a blessing or a curse depending on whose there. It is usually less busy than Dona Ana so you can get the feeling of Dona Ana with less people. But if it does start getting even remotely populated it will feel more crowded more quickly because it is smaller.

Where to stay in Lagos

The historical city core of Lagos is packed full of colorful buildings and bustling streets, some of which date as far back as the medieval period. Though the hotels in the central district are on the expensive side, you can put yourself right in the middle of the city's best restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions by reserving a room there. The center and outlying residential neighborhoods also boast plenty of more affordable options, including smaller hotels, guesthouses, and family-run inns that offer fewer amenities but put you in good position to get out and about on foot. As Lagos is a relatively small town, you'll be within walking distance of both of its premier stretches of beach from nearly any lodging. Those with a car or transportation can get even further afield to experience other nearby coastal areas.
