Praia da Batata

Praia da Batata “Potato Beach” is a white sand beach, located near Forte da Ponta da Bandeira (a 17th century fortress), and it’s the closest beach to Lagos town centre and consequently is known locally as the “town beach”. The beach has interesting rock formations, which give it an aspect of a shell. There is no infrastructure support, and quality of water is questionable due to the proximity of the port. However, these beaches are frequented by residents.
