Location Praia da Batata - Lagos



The Praia da Batata area has two areas where you will be able to enjoy the sand, one located by the fortress, not very quiet due to the amount of the boats visiting the Ponta da Piedade caves, and the main area where the lifeguard post is located.


On the end of the road leading to the beach, next to the boat club where the rental canoes are, you will find two parking places for disabled people.


On the access to the beach and using the services available, the ground is made of small lime cobblestone by the parking lot and the toilets' access.
If you are going to the beach by the fortress, on the path leading there you will find the same cobblestone and also cement pavement, once the path crosses the boats' access ramp.
If you are using the guarded beach area, where the lifeguards are, there is a small ramp to overcome, while the rest of the path is made of wood.
There is no plastic carpet to acceed the water.


The existing toilet is located on the building next to the parking lot.
Its access is made using a ramp, with a sliding door that may create some difficulty when opening, for there is no adjacent platform.
Inside the space is roomy and it is provided with helping bars.

Beach Chair

In order to help the beach's disabled users there is a special beach chair available.
When it is not being used, it is kept in the local boat club, and if you would like to use it you should go to the lifeguard's post.
Family and friends may also help on its use.
