Lagos Beaches: Praia do Camilo
Praia do Camilo
Praia do Camilo can be reached by local bus and the Lagos tourist train from Lagos town or takes about 40-50 minutes to walk along Avenue dos Descobrimentos past the Parque de Campismo Trindade (camp site). Taxi is another option and will cost around 12-15 Euros for the journey in to Lagos.
The sheltered beach is reached by a set of 200 very steep, wooden steps from the headland above.
The clear water is excellent for swimming and the sandstone rock formations here are some of the best on this stretch of stunning coastline.
There's a restaurant on the cliffs above the beach with spectacular views.
Care should be taken with sheltering in the shade of the rock pillars on the beach as the stacks are liable for rock falls.
The next place of interest south from Praia do Camilo is Ponta da Piedade.
