Praia do Porto de Mós is a beautiful sandy bay backed with tall multi-coloured cliffs at either side. There are two beach restaurants with the usual stunning views and a large car park right behind the beach.
Porto de Mós beach is 3.5kms from Lagos town centre. To get there follow the Avenida dos Descobrimentos past the fort and up the hill past the fire station. Turn left at the ‘ball’ roundabout, straight across the ‘tulip’ roundabout, straight across the next roundabout, down the rather steep hill to the beach. If you are feeling energetic and want a great view..walk up to the top of the cliffs on the western side of the beach…you can even walk all the way to Praia da Luz! Just to the left of Porto de Mós is the small beach of Canavial.
Distance from Casa do Governador: 30 minutes walk.
