Praia Dona Ana, Lagos

4.3
#1 of 83 in Outdoors in Lagos
Golden sands, colorful rocks, and calm waters are characteristic of Praia Dona Ana, a small beach hidden from roads and development. Nestled amidst cliffs and surrounded by countless grottos and rocky outcroppings, the area is within walking distance of the city center and is accessible by a flight of stairs or by a boat. You can rent a lounge chair and an umbrella at the site, or just spread out your towel. When you're ready for a snack, visit one of the many cafes on the clifftops, which also offer views of the ocean. Look toward the horizon to see if you can spot groups of fishing vessels at work.

  • Beside Praia Camilo we saw this beach from our boat cruise. People were swimming on a nice but cool March afternoon. Stunning rock formations.  more »
  • Potentially one of Lagos' most beautiful areas for cliffs and coves but spoiled by the derilect apartment blocks nearby which just stand there, all graffetied.  more »
  • Amazing view! This is the most beautiful beach in Portugal! You can walk and find many large shells! Sunset is unbelievable!  more »

  • Great and such amazing spot. Excellent place to spend an afternoon walking around, having lunch in the area and enjoy the amazing view of the beaches. Turquoise waters and impressive rocks.
  • An amazing beach in Lagos with a phenomenal natural setting. A lovely backdrop to a great time.
  • Beautiful beach with gentle slope to the sea. Great scenery and not too busy in April.
  • Not thé best beach in the region, but definitely worth a sunny day off-season!
  • The beach was smaller than expected. We went in late August which was high season. It was crowded and the sand was quite granular. The cliffs were beautiful from the ocean. But the shape of the beach created a bit of a wind tunnel. Umbrellas flying everywhere! We ended up moving to Praia Sao Roque that was wider, had fine sand, and had a restaurant/bar/washroom nearby. Much more relaxing, which is what we expect for a beach vacation.
