Camilo beach in Lagos (‘Praia do Camilo’) is simply beautiful! Water a bit cold but the rock formation is fantastic, really unspoiled natural beauty. The view over the beach from the top is breathtaking and if you can make it down all the steps you will not be disappointed! Picturesque cliffs embrace the little beach and the rock formations are magnificent. It is a wonderfully sheltered bay for swimming and is an ideal choice of beach for a breezy day.
There is a restaurant on the cliffs above Camilo beach which is very popular with local residents, serving local dishes and specialising in freshly caught seafood and the views are stunning!
.’Praia do Camilo’ is on the way to Ponta da Piedade and is the turning 500m further on from Dona Ana along ‘Estrada da Ponta da Piedade’. There is a small car park by the restaurant.
