Lagos Area, Algarve
The historic walled town of Lagos was once the capital of the western Algarve and has a cosmopolitan atmosphere, with paved pedestrian areas, wide avenues, an excellent choice of shops, bars, restaurants and a couple of nightclubs. There is a superb daily fish market together with a weekly tourist market in the summer. The cobbled boulevard that runs parallel to the river leads to the fabulous marina which is filled with all manner of boats from small dinghies to opulent yachts, and there are some excellent bars and restaurants overlooking the water - the dolphin watching trips from the marina are fantastic and private yacht charter is also available. The golden sands of Meia Praia beach stretch for 4kms around the bay of Lagos and the small, sandy coves and grottoes provide secluded and sheltered sunbathing. There are superb sports facilities in and around Lagos including scuba diving, water-skiing, windsurfing,...

There are six or seven beaches within a twenty minute drive, wide stretches of golden sand and steep sided sheltered coves, some busy and some deserted, but all very beautiful. The seaside town of Praia da Luz
is just a few kilometres away.
Excellent shops, an attractive marina, a good market and lovely beaches. Due to the new motorway, now only fifty minutes drive from Faro Airport.
Transfer by taxi is quite expensive as these resorts are further from Faro Airport.
