Meia Praia is the most famous of the Lagos beaches. Its sheer size, wonderfully clean sand, lovely beach bars and proximity to the town make it a perfect choice for relaxing into the Lagos beach life! Meia Praia extends over 4km up to the delta of the rivers Odiáxere and Arão and has numerous car parks along it’s length. Walking from the marina, past the train station takes around 5 minutes to reach the western end where 3 of the beach bars are situated. There are ramps and wooden walkways for ease of access. Alternatively, during the summer there is a water taxi (“Vai Vem”) from the main avenue in Lagos (“Avenida dos Descobrimentos”). The pontoon is opposite the underground car park and it drops off on the other side of the river giving direct access to the far western end of Meia Praia beach.
Distance from Casa do Governador: 10 minutes walk (the shortest route by water taxi).
