Why go to Lagos

With year-round sunshine and golden sandy beaches, Lagos is one of the Algarve’s loveliest seaside towns. Between lazy days swimming and sunbathing, rounds of golfs and hiking along clifftop trails overlooking the Atlantic, there’s plenty to keep you busy. As the sun sets, head to a seafood restaurant and sip great-value Portuguese wines in the town’s buzzy bars.

Lagos has a long seafaring history – many of Portugal’s famous explorers set off from here on voyages of discovery in the 15th century, and fishing is still an important way of life, which you’ll soon discover at the excellent fish market. Fishing trips depart from the marina, along with boat tours, to the cliffs of Ponta da Piedade, one of the region’s top attractions.

For sun seekers, Lagos is home to arguably some of the best beaches along the Algarve coast. Head up to Meia Praia, with its long stretch of sand and family-friendly vibe, or head west and discover a string of small sandy coves bordered by cliffs. Join the surfers and paddle boarders, build sandcastles with the kids, or just flop on the sand with a good book.
