Praia do Camilo

Praia do Camilo is a picturesque beach located in Portugal. It is known for its natural beauty, featuring crystal blue waters and a unique, breathtaking landscape. The beach is divided into two small sections, connected by a tunnel. The surrounding scenery is fantastic, with a viewpoint above the beach offering a panoramic view of the area. However, visitors should be aware of warning signs about falling rocks, as there is no protection from this natural hazard. Access to the beach is via a wooden staircase with more than 200 steps, which can be quite challenging for some visitors. Despite this, the beach is very popular and can get crowded, especially during peak times. Therefore, it is advisable to arrive early to secure a spot. There is a small amount of parking available at the top of the stairs, and a larger parking lot is located off of a nearby roundabout. The beach does not have many amenities. There are no showers or toilets nearby, and there are very few places to lie down. The beach is also full of seaweeds, which can sometimes make the water appear black and create an unpleasant smell, making it less suitable for swimming. Despite these challenges, Praia do Camilo remains a must-visit destination for its stunning natural beauty.
