The Dona Ana Beach is situated in between golden rocky cliffs.
This is a good spot for diving and observing the beautiful sea fauna and flora.
The access to this beach is made through a long and inclined stairway.

Lagos is a dynamic and active city, which is justifiably proud of its past and possesses a very rich and well preserved patrimony.

The region of Lagos has a long history linking it to the sea. Its original name, Lacobriga, reflects the fact that the first inhabitants of this port, in roughly 2000 years BC, were of Celtic origin. After them came the Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians, but it was the Romans that brought growth and prosperity to the town. The Moors built walls around Lagos in the 10th century and gave it the name of Zawaia. They remained here until the town was conquered by the Christians in 1249 and became part of the Portuguese territory.
