Best Beaches in Lagos

Lagos is known as the gold coast, due to its golden hue of the cliffs that form caves along the fantastic beaches that offer families the opportunity to visit by boat. The Region has two entirely different types of beaches; the rocky beaches, like D.Ana and Ponta da Piedade and further to the East, the open beaches like Meia Praia and Praia da Luz.

Lagos has beautiful beaches jammed on the yellow rocky cliffs, and surrounded by typical Algarve overhanging vegetation. Often, these beaches are limited by small cliffs as tall as a 4th floor and usually a narrow stairway gives access to the beach and restaurants. The water is very clean of a pleasing transparent green revealing the rocky bottom here and there. Beaches are ordered from West to East, being Meia Praia the most Eastern beach in Lagos and Praia da Luz, the most Western.
