Meia Praia is the largest beach in Lagos, stretching over 4km, towards the Odiaxere river mouth and the Alvor Lagoon. The area behind the beach is also referred to as Meia Praia. Considering the tourist developments found elsewhere in the Algarve, Meia Praia maintains a low-key atmosphere with small beach huts and restaurants, and its length makes it the perfect spot for walks along the beach and all kinds of water sports.
The beach is bound by wide grassed sand banks that open onto quiet roads that lead to different residential areas and holiday apartments.
The two main attractions of this area are the beach (with all its possibilities) and the The Palmares golf and beach resort, a 27-hole golf resort with stunning views.
