These two pictures are taken from the south coast at Praia de Dona Ana in Lagos, perfect beaches for soaking up some sun, swimming and snorkeling.
These four pictures were taken on the west coast at Praia da Bordeira, a beach that many surfers enjoy, on the day these photos were taken there was a red flag flying but still many people were trying to go in for a swim, some even with children! Luckily the lifeguards were there to tell them to get out but you have to wonder why people take such a risk with the ocean.
This picture is of a surfer at Meia Praia, a beautiful long sandy beach which is usually fairly calm as it's on the south coast but sometimes does get surfable waves.
Thanks for reading :)
