Praia do Camilo is one of the gems of Algarve, the Portuguese region with the best beaches you can find in the country. The landscape is one those that you cannot stop admiring: might be for the majestic cliffs, the crystal-clear water, or a combination of both. Anyhow, we recommend paying attention because we are about to introduce you to one of the most beautiful beaches in Algarve. .

The experience of getting to know Praia do Camilo starts above the cliff, where you will park the car. From there, you will admire the cove and all its beauty. It’s possible to appreciate the transparency of water (yes, from up there!) and the different shades of blue. Also you can appreciate the cliffs and rock arches, giving way to boats and kayaks. All together, a breathtaking view!

Once you are done with the view, it’s time to go down and experience the beach itself. Between you and her, a 220 steps staircase! But don’t worry: if you let yourself get distracted by the view a little while longer, you will be down in no time! The beach is amazing. The sand is soft and the water transparent and fresh.

The most stunning feature of Praia do Camilo might be the stone arches, that you can explore swimming or kayaking (you can easily rent one). Or maybe the peculiar silhouette of the cliffs With these characteristics, the beach seems to acquire an adventurous personality! If it wasn’t for that, we could also say that this beach is a paradisiac cove where to enjoy the tranquility of the water and the softness of the sand.

In addition to kayaking, Praia do Camilo is a perfect spot for snorkeling. You can swim in its crystal-clear waters and observe its marine life! And what if you are hungry when you are done? No worries: right at the top of the staircase there is a popular fish restaurant. And you know what? Its name is Do Camilo!

Praia do Camilo is so beautiful and popular, that it gets jam-packed in August! There are a couple of things you can do to make sure you can place your towel on the sand. On the one hand, you can wait for the low tide, when there is more space available. On the other (and this is our favorite option), you can contribute to the sustainability of the beach by going there in May, June, September, or any of the other low season months.  

Discover one of the treasures of Portugal! Praia do Camilo awaits you to relax and enjoy its wonderful views!
