Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The peaceful little sandy beach of Praia da Ingrina lies quite secluded in a natural, unspoiled hilly landscape in the south-west of Portugal. On this remote yet well-kept beach, which is bordered by rocky ground and slopes gently into the water, you can relax completely, whether you're alone, or with your partner or family. Even in peak season you won't get crowds of tourists thronging here. Enjoy the magnificent view from Restaurante do Sebastião along with a tasty fish dish under the palm trees. Divers will be delighted by the impressive underwater world formed by the many rocks.

Praia da Ingrina - A peaceful, but breezy little sandy beach for relaxing!

The sandy beach of Praia da Ingrina lies quite secluded in the south-west of Portugal. The nearest large resort is called Vila do Bispo and is ten minutes' drive away. The beach is around 30 minutes from the larger town of Lagos. Apart from a campsite in the background, the surrounding area consists of completely natural, unspoiled hills with plenty of greenery. Towards the water it gets more and more rocky.

You can park your car in the car park belonging to Restaurante do Sebastião, which is slightly higher up. Here in Restaurante do Sebastião you can enjoy refreshing drinks and tasty fish dishes under huge palm trees.

With its gentle entry into the water and southerly aspect, Praia da Ingrina, at 90 metres long, has ideal bathing conditions. The water in the bay stays calm in the wind, which generally comes from the west, and rarely causes large waves. A lifeguard keeps an eye on safety in the summer months.

A large area of pebbles and stones, which extends a few metres out into the sea, lies to the west of the well-kept sandy beach. From the footpaths that lead along here there is a fantastic view of the stony coastline. To the west the beach is bordered by rocky hills. Divers also appreciate the many rock formations in the water here.

Apart from a few sun umbrellas there is no shade on Praia da Ingrina. However, there is quite a strong breeze, which relieves the intensity of the sun's rays to some extent. A relatively high number of locals come here to relax in the peaceful atmosphere, but tourists from Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain also appreciate the natural charm of this small bay.
