Praia Dona Ana Algarve Video
Before I share many pictures of the beautiful sea Stacks of Praia Dona Ana Portugal, let's start with a short video:
Top Views of Praia Dona Ana Beach
As you arrive to Dona Ana Beach from the parking, there is a platform where you can enjoy beautiful views of the beach, the cliffs and the sea stacks.
Praia Dona Ana Algarve is 160m long and has all the facilities. It is a very popular beach being located so close to the center of Lagos et being quite safe with small waves.
Towards the West, you can see the cliffs and sea stacks towards Praia do Camilo, another stunning Lagos beach which is a lot more secluded and smaller.
Access to Praia Dona Ana Algarve
There are 2 staircases to access Praia Dona Ana Lagos.
Like many of the Algarve beaches, there are a lot of steps to reach the sand!
Here, at from the parking to the beach, you have 93 steps.
This location, along with many other beautiful places, is included in my eBook: The Road Trip Guide - Portugal.

Praia Da Dona Ana Beach in Photos
Once you are down you can explore the sea stacks, coves and cliffs. At low tide, you have access to a lot more!
The rock formations are stunning with colors varying in the yellow, orange and red. This was my favorite. It looks so different from all the angles!
I did not swim, but it is apparently a good spot for snorkeling. There is quite abundant fauna and flora underwater around more rocks.
Sea Stacks at Praia Dona Ana Portugal
The sand at Dona Ana Beach is not the best. I have not found it very soft. But for those who like it, at low tide there are lots of shells!
At the East Tip of Praia Dona Ana Algarve Beach, there is a beautiful rock formation that looks like a wall but with a small arch under it. The proportion is really surprising.
Praia Do Pinhao
At the end of Praia Dona Ana Portugal, has been erected a king of sea wall.
On the other side you can see the small cave beach which appears only at low tide (did not find its official name).
As you can see there is a small sea cave that is accessible at low tide. Great to protect your self from the heat. But it gets filled up at high tide!
And in the continuity is Praia do Pinhao, a secluded beach that so far has been protected from the tourism.
