This beach is classified among the most beautiful in the world, it is a real must if you visit the Algarve! Its magnificent landscapes marked by large rock formations are reminiscent of Thailand, between Phuket and Koh Samui.

Praia de los Estudantes, Lagos

This charming beach is made up of several coves, which can be reached through tunnels under the rock. Enough to make your children feel like real adventurers! On the positive side: it is not far from the city centre, so you can climb back home after a day of sunbathing. Be careful, however, many boats pass in front of the beach due to its beauty.

Ilha da Barreta, also known as ilha Deserta, opposite Faro

This beach is actually an island, located about a hundred meters in front of Faro. It is accessible by boat only, but will give you the feeling of being alone in the world, or almost alone. Take a look at the island's restaurant: it is an ecological restaurant, built on stilts and powered by solar energy.

This cove with its crystal clear waters will transport you to the most beautiful landscapes of the Algarve. Swim in one of the beach's natural swimming pools, which are not very popular but charming. If you want to visit caves and creeks, bring a mask and snorkel with you, the seabed is worth it!
