Our Top 10 Destination Recommendations
Here are our favourite things to see and do in and around Lagos.
Some are well known, some not so well known.
They are in no particular order.
Discover the beautiful and stunning Lagos coastline by sea, admire the beautiful cliffs, caves, hidden beaches. In a kayak you can reach places others cannot, and local, knowledgeable staff will show you the most beautiful parts. There are many operators, or guest can hire kayaks on the shoreline for an hour.
2. Boat Trips
Boat trips are well organised from Lagos, with variety to choose from advertised in Lagos and all along the marina. All offer trips into the Grotto caves, family fishing trips and Dolphin trips. During the Grotto trips, sail along the magnificent Lagos coast to explore the caves and rock formations. They are a great way to spend the day. After sailing along the Lagos bay, some anchor in a sheltered cove. There you can take a swim and go snorkelling, while the staff prepare a great lunch.
3. Snorkling and Scuba Diving
Guests at Lagos will find daily scuba diving and snorkelling trips advertised in the town and along the marina, with so many sites along the beautiful Algarve coast to explore, including night dives and wreck explorations. Set on the South West peninsula of Europe is Portugal, with miles of spectacular coastline, clear blue seas, a unique fascinating culture and countless hours of sunshine! Explore the Atlantic waters!
4. Trail Walks
From the very top of the Boavista Golf resort turn left and walk along the road keeping the golf course on your left, until you reach a track on your right that takes you past a isolated villa and becomes a trail to the coastal path. This path is well maintained and safe and you can turn left and walk to Porto De Mos, (1 hour) or right and walk to Praia da Luz (2 hours).
The Algarve coastline around Lagos is a fantastic safe place to learn to surf whatever your age, and as such you will find several shops in the town that can arrange surfing lessons. Once mastered, trips are also available to the nearby Sagres area where the waves provide a great experience.
6. Sand Sculptures
The Algarve is becoming a highly popular destination for serious road cycling; with its vast open roads and hilly terrain. The EuroVelo 1 route belongs to a European network of 15 long distance cycle routes connecting and uniting the whole European continent. From Norway to Portugal, the Atlantic Coast Route connects some of the world’s most beautiful seascapes. Expect dramatic fjords, sun-kissed beaches and bustling port towns. The route runs through Norway, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal.
8. Zoo Marine
Over 30 stores are already welcoming customers with more opening before the Spring (2018) such as Timberland, Guess. Described as the “biggest fashion outlet in the Algarve and the first in Europe to be integrated in an IKEA store”, the outlet runs “permanent discounts of up to 70%”. Whilst driving along the A22 from Faro you hopefully saw the enormous Ikea on your left which is the landmark for the retail park it sits within.
10. Silves Castle
Silves is a delightful and traditional Portuguese town that makes for an enjoyable day trip. The peaceful ambience of the town today does not reflect the historical importance of Silves, which 700-1200ad was the capital and defensive stronghold of the entire region. Remnants of this illustrious era can be discovered throughout Silves, and include the huge red brick castle, the impregnable city walls and defensive gates. The fantastic medieval festival takes places 1st-31st August 2018.
