The beaches around Lagos are some of the most beautiful in the Algarve. They all have golden sand (no pebbles), great surf and very unspoiled with no buildings allowed to be built near them. The 4km long Meia Praia beach is 10-15 minutes walk away, as are the many Lagos town beaches. Meia Praia has good sporting facilities and restaurants and is ideal for children due to the calm waters. Praia de Dona Ana, which can be reached after a 25-minute walk from the town centre, is said to be the most photographed beach in the Algarve. There are too many others to mention.
You will be spoilt for choice with loads of activities close by.
- Boat Trips: From the marina (5 mins walk) you can book dolphin spotting trips with guaranteed viewing or go on a fishing or grotto trip.
- Waterparks: There are waterparks such as Slide & Splash (30 min drive). Europe's largest water park.
- Zoomarine (40 min drive): is a marine life theme park with an aquarium, dolphin shows, 4D cinema, dolphin interaction and also thrill rides such as the pirate boat and flume ride.
- Walking: There is great coastal walking all around, bike hire and Jeep Safaris.
- Surfing: There are great surfing beaches nearby and a sailing school within walking distance. If you like extreme sports you can book sky diving, kite surfing, windsurfing, downhill mountain biking, kayaking.
- Historic day trips (Silves, Seville, Lisbon) can also be booked, although a lot is already on your doorstep in Lagos. The Lagos coach and train stations are both an easy walk from apartment.
Faro airport is a 50 minutes drive (by motorway) and you can hire a taxi or a shuttle. Car hire whilst staying at our apartment is not essential as you will be within easy walking distance to the Marina, the town, and the many beaches. Lagos train station is a 5-minute walk and Lagos bus station is even nearer, a mere 2-minute walk.

Bars and restaurants:
The many bars and restaurants of Lagos town (more than 350) are within easy walking distance
Lagos is widely reported as the most attractive town on the Algarve. It has avoided the worst elements of modern tourism and instead has chosen to develop its tourism with taste and class. There is a good balance between the modern Marina and associated boat, trips, fishing and dolphin spotting activities and the charm and history of the Old Portuguese town. The town center is a rambling maze of interlinking cobbled streets, with beautiful shops, restaurants, and bars but also fine old architecture and churches. At night throughout the summer there are artists and performance artists and live bands during festivals (which are frequent). The atmosphere is exciting but very safe. Lagos is particularly known for its fine and wide range of restaurants from Portuguese (obviously) to French, Italian, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Tapas, Chinese ... the list is endless and the quality excellent. But if you want to self cater there are good supermarkets within 5 minutes walk, a local fish and vegetable market and all within easy reach by foot. There is even a pull-along trolley bag in the apartment to make you feel at home.
About Deborah Harland
We are a married couple with children and grandchildren and have bought the apartment for the whole family to use and because we fell in love with Lagos. This is, therefore a special place for all of the family and we, therefore try to keep the apartment spotless for ourselves and for our guests. Because we use the apartment a great deal ourselves we have tried to think of all the little things that make a holiday easy and guests have often said that the apartment is like a home from home. The apartment is best suited for couples of any age.
Deborah Harland purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Deborah Harland chose Lagos
We bought the apartment because we love Portugal, especially the Western Algarve and most of all the town of Lagos. The main reason that we chose this particular apartment was the quality of the construction and the location as we wanted to be able to walk to everything; the marina, the beaches, the town, the shops, bars, and restaurants. We wanted to be able to have a holiday without needing to drive anywhere and we also wanted somewhere with a pool and we wanted an apartment that is on the inside of the complex looking over the pool (not at a road).
