Long Description:
Praia do Pinhão is cozy, surrounded by cliffs and rocks in the water. Close to the city of Lagos in Southern Portugal, it's one of my favorites ever. Actually it's so close to the city that one can just walk, and if traveling in the region, it's possible to take the train to Lagos and get to the beach in 20 min or so. And actually it's a good idea as there is no parking plot serving this beach and in the Summer it's virtually impossible to park anywhere nearby.

Here the Atlantic is sweet and warm. Most of the times there are no waves, the water is flat as in a swimming-pool. Great for kids.
