Lagos Beaches

Lagos is full of beaches and one of the major and busiest destination in Algarve. Hard to find Holiday Rentals in Lagos during the peak seasons. It has almost all sort of beaches, Lets explore these popular one’s:

 

Ponta da Piedade: The most popular one and full of clear blue waters, cliffs all around. It offers a soothing view all around. Even if you try to find out the best beaches on google or look for images – you will find this beach images will be popping up everywhere because of its popularity and the views offered by this beach. The coastal/cliff path is very scenic and about 10 mins walk from Lagos. During Peak seasons be aware its hard to find parking here so plan accordingly. There is a nice cafe at the park too. You can visit most of the grotto’s in Ponta da Piedade by boat. Generally beaches have sand all around but this beach is different completely surround by huge cliffs and you’ll get to explore some caves as well. So not sure its good to say its completely a beach or but sure a popular destination in Lagos. Most of the guests prefers to book their holiday rentals accommodation near by it. You can also explore it via Kayak, its an adventurous destination to visit for sure.

 

Praia Do Camilo : This is next to Ponta de Piedade, again one of the crowded beaches too so parking is a constraint here too and you need to take a staircase to reach down to the beach. Obviously taking a staircase a tiring job for the guests but surely it gives you an immense pleasure when you look at the view while stepping down and takes away all the tiredness even charges you with excitement to reach at the bottom to have more fun. You’ll find quality restaurants there good food specially the sea food. From the top you’ll find rocks floating at the shore , small caves to explore around – good place for kids to enjoy and having a good time with your family. The water is as calm as it gets, and you can swim round or walk through a natural tunnel to a neighboring cove. If you have not planned or booked your holiday rental for your next trip then must visit Lagos to experience these mesmerizing locations.

 

Meia Praia : This beach is not like the above two but with a huge shore . You’ll not feel that crowded here as its quite open and huge unlike Ponta da Piedade. You’ll find good restaurants and bars near by. You can easily find affordable rental accommodations near by this place however budget varies on your choice either its a luxury holiday rental villa or a holiday rentals apartment but still you can crack good holiday rentals deal here. Water here is a bit cold and the currents are little stronger in this beach but still preferable for Kids and families and here no problem for parking too. Its ideal for long walks on the beach.

 

Praia de Dona Ana: Its the one closest to the old center of Lagos – one of the best areas to explore around Lagos. Nice beach, sand and caves to explore. If the water is too sudden deep with loose sand, which pulls you deeper in the water, just wait for the afternoon around 4p.m and you will be able to walk to the distances where you had to swim to during the earlier times of the day. The water level gets lower and lower, making things much better. Besides, there are some small facilities like beach bars. You can prefer to reach the beach through the hills if you want to see the landscape or you may prefer road. Book Holiday Rentals in Lagos with GoHolidayLets.
