Praia da Batata


Praia da Batata


This beach is located between Praia dos Estudantes and the southern jetty on the Bensafrim Stream, a very short distance from the historical centre of Lagos. Clearly a town beach, a sunny, paved square has been built into a large part of the cliff behind it. Beyond the jetty, lies the tiny Solaria Beach and the Ponta da Bandeira Fortress, right by the entrance to the harbour. The beach has lots of inlets and nooks that are sheltered from the prevailing winds, as you would expect from the craggy outline of the Golden Coast’s ochre cliffs, greatly eroded by the elements. This is quite a busy beach, as it continues on from Lagos’s long seafront promenade that follows the mouth of the Bensafrim Stream and the bright colours of the yachts in the marina and the traditional fishing boats in the fishing harbour.

More information

Note: Given the risk of landslides and loose stones falling on to the beach, you are advised to keep a safe distance from the cliffs.
The beach can be accessed on foot and by car from the Avenida dos Descobrimentos in Lagos. There are small, organised parking areas next to the beach. Support infrastructures include restaurants, WC, information and recreational facilities, and there are lifeguards on duty in the summer holiday season. This is an accessible beach. Orientation: east.
