View of Camilo Beach from the cliffs
Praia Do Camilo is located in the coastline tips South of the town of Lagos, Portugal. At this location, you can find some of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve and in Portugal. The most famous is Praia Dona Ana because it has a lot of sand. But I think Praia Do Camilo is way more scenic.
From the parking, you can first easily walk on the cliffs to admire the views of cliffs and sea stacks below you.
In the 2 photos below, in the foreground you have Camilo beach and in the background you can see Praia Dona Ana.
The West side of Camilo beach, gives an idea of the beautiful coastline there is to come if you head West to the magnificent promontory of Ponta Da Piedade.

But to see this scenic beach, you need to make an effort. At this location, the cliffs are quite high. And you will have to get down 225 steps to reach the sand!!! It is hard on the knee... and worst, you know you will have to climb them to go back up!
Don't forget anything in the car, and use the bathroom before starting the descent.
At least as you walk down, the view is splendid and gets you more and more excited to reach the beach.
This location, along with many other beautiful places, is included in my eBook: The Road Trip Guide - Portugal.

And now let's have a look at some pictures of Praia Do Camilo. I think it is best visited at low tide to explore the coves and have the foreground of rock formations.
The sand is Golden and the cliffs yellow/orange. And the water is particularly clear.
