Stake your claim to a seat at one of the many beach bars that line the coast and sip on a cold beer as you vacation in one of the Algarve's top destinations. With its Moorish architecture, stunning beaches, hidden caves, and incredible nightlife, Lagos is often considered to be one of the few towns in the area that has developed its natural attractions without becoming overtly touristy.
Sports enthusiasts booking vacations to Lagos will find a great deal to keep them occupied in and out of the water. You can surf the waves, explore the ocean bed while snorkeling or scuba diving, or stick to the shore with mountain bike trails, hiking adventures, or even a golf game or two if that's what you're looking for. Lagos is not short on historic attractions either and from its 16th century city walls to loads of chapels and churches that have withstood the test of time over hundreds of years, you will have plenty to see and learn about simply by walking around the town.
Lagos' city centre is where you will find some of the area's best street entertainment, cafes screening Portugal's latest bid for soccer glory, stores selling the region's signature cork and ceramic products at bargain discounts, and plenty of stops for some delicious Portuguese food and drink on the cheap.
