    One of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever visited
    Initially, I had to walk for about 30 mins from Lagos train station to Praia do Camilo but as soon as I set my eyes on the beautiful view this places offers I knew the tiresome walk was worth it. A great place for photos! Not only is it great for hiking but the view is a one in a lifetime experience. Defo would recommend if you’re in the Algarve.

    Morning visit to Praia Do Camilo.
    Family of 4, children aged 7 & 11. Beautiful beach. Their board walk set up really is great. Number of steps down to the beach which was life guarded. Got very crowded very quickly but given the size of the beach not surprising but didn’t ruin it for us either. Free parking in a large car park a few minute walk away. This got full by 11am. Tunnel through to another cove as well which was novel. Stunning clear sea and white sand.

    Gorgeous cove, can get busy!
    Beautiful little cove, it can get busy and when the tide comes in, space can be limited. Water is clear however seaweed is in the water and being the Pacific Ocean, the water is refreshingly cold, but manageable. Parking can be quite difficult, make sure you get there early and check the tide times!

The beach is out of this world!! Some seaweed in the daytime, but the water gets warmer and clears up in the late afternoon. A must see!!

Beautiful view at top. Stairway is about 200 steps. Too much SEAWEED as of early Sept 2023 to enjoy which is really unfortunate. Most popular beaches and sights around this area seems to be plagued by the seaweed issue. Several roads around here are closed due to construction which may mean some extra walking after you park

Lots of steps down to an absolutely packed beach, where people had made little spaces between tons of stinky seaweed.
Not really worth the bother - there are tons of better beaches within 10 miles.

Save yourself the bother and go at sunset and look down on the rock formations here, don’t bother going down to the beach

The beach was full of Sea weeds this morning. Not a single person on the beach.
It is a small beach with easy access through wide parking and good steps.

We had high expectations for this beach - as all the reviews said it was amazing. We got there and it was so crowded that it was impossible to even find a place to sit. But worse was the seeweed - there were tons and tons We couldn't get into the water without being swamped with seeweed. I could see that under different circumstances it could be quite a nice beach. My suggestion - check the seeweed situation first and go early to avoid the crowds. It is a bit out of the way to be disappointed.

Easy stroll on the wooden walkway overlooking the sea. Did the entire walk, probably 5 beaches total. Definitely, a highlight of Lagos. Have an Uber drop you at the lighthouse and go in either direction.
