WHY LAGOS:

An excellent choice for travellers who want the Algarve's climate and amenities but who prefer not to be in the heart of a bustling seaside town. Lagos is reknown for its iconic golden sandy beaches, clear blue waters and sandstone cliffs. It is ideal if you want great beaches but a little more besides... Away from the beaches you'll find much to keep you occupied: historic old town, marina, shops & resturants, markets and more. The active can enjoy SUP and sea kayaks around the sea stacks, snorkelling & diving, boat trips and bike rides. For kids there's Lagos Zoo and an adventure park.

The Local Area

Lagos is a leading resort on the Algarve but it's well away from the well-trodden resorts you'll find around Faro.

We love Lagos because it brings together a great package for memorable family holidays - superb beaches, loads of activities and culture too. If you add to that a wonderful climate and superb cuisine then you have all the ingredients of a wonderful holiday.

LAGOS BEACHES

The Lagos coastline is reknown for its spectacular sea caves, stacks, grottos and arches. There are many local companies that hire equipment and who provide guided excursions.

There are a dozen or so beaches in and around the town. Just to the east is Meia Praia which at 4 km is the longest stretch of sand on the western Algarve coast. There are many smaller coves immediately south and west of the town including Batata, Dona Ana and Camilo. 

LAGOS FOR KIDS

  • The beaches are excellent and numerous. Golden sands and beautiful, clear water 
  • Lagos Zoo
  • Boat trips out of Lagos marina - dolphin spotting is a common excursion
  • Plenty of activities on-hand - see below

LAGOS ACTIVITIES

This is where Lagos excels. You can easily fill a fortnight with a wide variety of activities. Here's just a selection:

  • Go-kart track at the Lagos Autodromo
  • Explore the coast via sea kayak or stand-up paddle board
  • Dolphin-watching boat trip
  • Jeep safari
  • Mountain biking excursion
  • Golf if you want it but try the pro-putting garden for something more fun and less time-consuming!
  • Diving and snorkelling
  • Adventure park
  • Sailing, wind-surfing and kite-surfing
  • Surfing and boady-boarding (further west is best)

LAGOS CULTURE

Lagos is steeped in history and there's a charming old town to explore with cobbled streets and wide choice of bars and restaurants. The historic old town has retained its charm and is surrounded by the city walls. There are several historic buildings including a castle. The town's market is 'a must' visit for fresh food and souvenirs. Across the water is the newer face of Lagos with it's splendid marina.
