Lagos Hotels

Mini guide to Lagos


Located on the Algarve in the southern part of Portugal, Lagos features a picturesque port and a handsome restored sea fort, with a series of magnificent beaches just outside the town.

Praia de Dona Ana beach, to the south of the city, is the most appealing. If you go all the way to the southernmost point, Ponta da Piedade, you'll pass some pretty cove beaches set against a backdrop of rock formations. Although it's crowded in summer, another good, white-sand beach is the 2.5kms long Meia Praia (Half Beach), across the river from the centre of town.

A wander around the town will reveal many architectural signs of its ancient past. Attached to the famous 17th century Igreja de Santo António, or 'gold church', is a small museum of regional items, some of which are quite odd. The recently constructed Marina presents a lovely picture and features a modern cultural centre in which various exhibitions and culturally related events are held during the year.

Lagos has an established scuba diving centre with regular excursions to underwater caves and shipwrecks. There are also boat tours and deep sea-fishing outings that leave from the marina. For a slice of nightlife, explore the restaurants, bars and shops on and just off the charming cobbled Rua 25 de Abril.

If you hire a car, the village of Sagres, offering dramatic towering sheer cliffs so common to the Algarve, is a must-see. To the north of Lagos is the small town of Aljezur with some fine nearby west coast beaches. The 10th century Moorish castle still stands today, overlooking this small town.

By road from Lisbon, take the N2 highway, or, take the ferry from the capital's Praça do Comércio across the Tagus to Barreiro. From there, the Southern Line Railway runs to Lagos. Faro Airport lies to the east and there is a train station nearby which offers a service to Lagos.
