A beach not to miss as it's a long walk if you choose or a peaceful resting place with plenty of room to relax or swim. Very clean with good bars and restaurants available spaced conveniently along it's length

Is the best spot in Lagos to visit, take a bath or seat in the several restaurants that have in. Sometimes a little beat windy, but that's the reason why the conquers of the sea in the XV century leave from here !!!

The beach is spotless. Some nice beach bars with good food. Good transport links with a mainline train, land train and regular buses. Hope to come back to this area at some stage.

Our hotel was a five minute walk from this lovely beach which was almost empty depite the temperature in the high twenties/low thirties in October 2017. Nice little beach bar and sunbeds for hire if you needed them!

After cycling all through Portugal this was the best place to stay for a week, reasonably priced and easy access to Lagos by bus, walking or bicycle.

I don´t know if you mean Paddle Boards or canoes? Becaue there were several canoe tours starting from beaches in Lagos. I did not see Paddle Boards, but I don´t know if there aren´t any.

No, but the train station in Lagos is just a few minutes walk from Meia Praia (and the track passes just behind the beach). However, I agree with Scott M - there are other beaches more accessible from Faro.
