Budens

The local village next door to Parque da Floresta and where you'll find a supermarket and a couple of restaurants.

Salema

One of the Algarve's best-kept secrets. This is a charming fishing village & seaside resort, dotted with white-washed houses rather than the over-development that blights the Algarve. It was recently voted in Europe's Top 10 Beaches for Families by The Guardian. It's crystal clear blue waters and fine golden sands attract young families in particular. There are occasional waves for body-boarding and the beahc is life-guarded in summer.

There's also a fine choice of authentic restaurants and cafes - seafood being the speciality. Boia, Atlantico and Agua Na Boca come recommended.

Lagos & Nearby

On the western Algarve coast, Lagos is quite a find combining beach, culture and activities for a fabulous family holiday.

BEACHES

  • Lagos is home to one of the Algarve's finest beaches - the 4 mile stretch of golden sand, Meia Praia. It's proximity to the town and its lovely beach bars make it a frim favourite
  • Praia da Batata is in fact known as the town beach. It's a smaller and more sheltered beach
  • There are other lovely beaches outside of the town famous for their sandstone rock formations and wonderful sunset views

FOR KIDS

  • Slide & Splash Water Park at Lagoa
  • Zoo Lagos
  • Zoomarine! water theme park - with dolphins! 

ACTIVITIES

  • Boat trips along the coast - dolphin-spotting is popular
  • Sea kayaking
  • Mountain biking & hiking
  • Jeep safari
  • Watersports including sailing, windsurfing, boady-boarding & surfing
  • Diving & snorkelling
  • Algarve race & go kart track
  • Horse-riding
  • Golf
  • Tennis

CULTURE

  • Walk the old streets of Lagos taking in the city walls and governor's castle
  • Watch Europe's wealthy come-and-go at the marina
  • Visit the vibrant fish market or weekly Saturday market
