Photographer's Note

Praia de Dona Ana is in my opinion one of the most beautiful beaches in Algarve. Unfortunately everybody else seems to be the same opinion, people "vote with their legs", and indeed it is really hard to find any parking spot around. This shot was taken in the morning so it was still relatively empty.
The beach is to be found south from Lagos. There is another a bit less crowded and exactly as beautiful beach few miles to the south from Dona Ana. It is Praia do Camilo. If you drive or walk few miles south again you arrive in a place called Ponta de Piedade. Walk among those ochre cliffs is spectacular, although may be tough in August. I definitely recommend a trip (€10pp) with a small boat which you can rent on any of those beaches or in the Ponta de Piedade itself. The boat will take you for a trip around this fragment of the coast, you will visit small caves and other amazing rock formations.
