                              Lagos

   

 

 Since the early years Lagos has been of great importance to Portugal. Due to its location (right in front of Africa) several ships departed from Lagos in search of new lands.

Lagos has both historical and touristic sides. In Lagos you can see beautiful beaches, historical monuments and enjoy the night...it has lots of pubs and clubs. People from the United Kingdom will feel right at home with several Irish pubs crowding the place...it is common to hear the english language all over the streets the whole year.

In Lagos you can practise all sort of water sports: windsurf, water skiing,etc... and this lovely place in Algarve hasn´t forget all of you golf lovers as well. Please remember to visit all the beaches in Lagos: Meia praia ( in english named Half beach...curious thing because the beach is quite big), Dona Ana, Canavial, Luz and more. There are hourly guided tours by boat to visit the grottos...and even dolphins at high sea( highly recommended).  It's also worth considering a visit at Easter, as the climate is very dry, and it's an excellent time of year to brush up on your tennis and golfing skills.

The city has lots of tourists all year, mainly, English and German. There is a wide range of accommodation available in several reasonably quiet resorts along the coast.
