Beach Estudantes

Beach Estudantes, or Praia dos Estudantes, is a serene and picturesque beach located in the Algarve region of Lagos, Portugal. The beach is known for its unique Roman-style bridge which adds a distinctive charm to the already beautiful landscape. The beach's natural characteristics are its most striking features. It is surrounded by stunning cliffs and rocks that are closer to the town than most other beaches. These cliffs house small caves that lead to secluded smaller beaches, providing a sense of adventure and exploration for visitors. These smaller beaches can be explored during low tide. The beach's rocks are also noteworthy as they provide much-needed shade, eliminating the need for an umbrella. The beach is not easily accessible by bus, but visitors can reach it by walking from the old town or along the waterway. Alternatively, visitors can walk down the stairs from the parking lot or through tunnels in the cliffs from the neighboring beach. However, visitors are advised to wear comfortable shoes due to the terrain. Despite this, it is recommended to rent a car in the Algarve for more freedom and convenience. Beach Estudantes offers services and facilities such as parking and tourist facilities. However, parking can be difficult to find during peak summer hours. There are also restaurants located on top of the cliffs above the beach for those who prefer to dine out. However, visitors are advised to bring their own drinks. Despite its seclusion, Beach Estudantes can get crowded, especially during high tide. However, its small sandy area, protected by rocky formations, provides calm bathing conditions, making it a peaceful area popular among families, especially those with young children.
