One of the most popular coved, completely sheltered, surrounded -by-cliffs beaches in Lagos. Good parking and overlooked by sky-scraper hotels side-by-side with recession-ridden shells of apartment blocks. Nice cliff top walkng path about 30 minutes from central Lagos.

Pristine, picture perfect beach near Lagos, walkable from town. Its as gorgeous as the photos, even more so, clear water, a little cold for swimming in October but not prohibitive.

Nothing like early October at Praia Dona Ana to swim, read, sleep, drink, and just soak up the autumn sun in the Algarve at Lagos, Portugal!

The beach is beautiful and fun at the end of September and was not too crowded. Another pool ... Access to the beach is with stairs but there are not too many of them highly recommend

For a beach practically located in the city, Praia Dona Ana is exceptional. Probably 60-80 steps down to the beach.Parking is available but spots are hard to come by as the beach is crowded. If you are staying local, a great beach to walk in...More
