The Hiker's Path to the Beach

Large arrow left

While in the Algarve last Summer, we decided to look for unusual beaches. We got a good map in Lagos where we were staying. The map listed beaches on the wild western coast of Portugal. We decided to go to Praia do Amado ( Amado Beach).
There were not many Americans in this area so we considered these beaches as new tourist sites for us.
This is another of those rocky beaches with immense cliffs. Amado Beach is a long curved beach with huge rollers that the surfers from many countries enjoy. Hikers love the long path to the beach and cliffs. Many of us scrambled along the path and onto the rocks with cameras taking all kinds of photos.
On the road before the beach, there is a really good restaurant.
This is such a breathtaking spot. I hope we return.
