good family beaches

I arrive on Sat with my family and we love swimming and being on the beach. Pls can someone advise which sandy beaches are best for young children (4 and 9 years old) to swim safely and have a good time? Thanks

There numerous beaches around Lagos and one small but perfectly formed one in town itself. There is also the massive beach of Meia Praia across the river from the town.

Which area are you staying in? We can then recommend one that's nearby.

Thanks for replying. We are staying in Alma Verde nr Burgau which I am hoping is nice? I have never visited Portugal so am keen to make the most of out time.

Alma Verde village is about 10km/ 6miles west of Lagos. Burgau village/ beach is around 5 minutes drive, with Salema village/ beach no more than 10 minutes drive further west.

JOA_10, just a note of caution.

If you decide to venture out any further west (Sagres and beyond), please be aware that the currents can be treacherous and not suitable if your children want to swim.

leavinguk.

Your link takes me directly to an advertisement for a book you've written about Portugal. You must know that self promotion is against TA rules.
