Learning more about the Trails

Updated: Mar 9, 2021

Hello, Emi here. I hope you are all well.

Get Ready for the New Moon with Your Intentions.

There are so many beaches in Lagos. I had to edit a few times to correct the names.

I'm working on my phone again so sometimes I make mistakes. I apologise for that. Let's do it right this time. 😂

Access to the beach is along a pedestrian trail that runs along the cliff top, where the rich undergrowth of the Algarve’s Barrocal is gradually taking over what used to be fig orchards. The winding narrow trail descends to the beach by means of steps carved into the cliff face, where the dominant colours are very intense ochres and reds. The carbonate rock walls are deeply eroded and fissured as a result of rainwater. Plants typical of such harsh environments, such as turquoise tails sedum, gold coin daisies, sweet alyssum and statice, can be seen growing in the small cavities that form in the rock. Curiously-shaped submerged rock formations can be seen in the transparent waters.

Praia do Canavial is an unofficial nude beach. Naturism is tolerated here. The beach offers plenty of privacy and is loved by many naturists. Usually, nudists stay on the far east end of the beach, although this is not an official rule.
