There are many beautiful beaches nearby all within a 30 minute drive. Meia Praia is our local beach and will take you approximately 5/10 minutes depending on how quickly you walk. The beach stretches for miles with many local bars and restaurants. Various watersports are available plus Paragliding for the more daring.

Many boat trips are organised from the Marina, you can swim with the Dolpins, go fishing or explore the local caves. All can be arranged from the Marina or the Town.

The Lagos / Meia Praia area
Lagos is steeped in history and much of this is evident around the town. There are lots of different eating places whether you want traditional or the local curry house you will find it in Lagos. The Fish is fresh and delicious and with many varieties you must try them all. Sardines and fresh bread is a local favourite along with the local wine. Lots of local entertainment both in the town and the Marina.
Why not take part in the Sardine Festival in Portimao. How many Sardines can you eat? Great fun to watch, or just wander around. It is a huge open air festival with live bands, music and many stalls selling food, crafts and more. This is normally in July however the dates do change.
Plenty of Banks near by if you need to change money you will need to take your passport with you.

The apartment was fantastic and had everything we needed for a very comfortable hassle free stay. The pool area was great and very close and child friendly. We were also very close to cafes, restaurants, bars and the supermarket.
The food at the restaurants was fantastic and very reasonably priced. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive this holiday was. 8 to 10 Euros for lunch per person and 1.50 to 6 euros for a bottle of wine in the supermarket. If we didn't feel like going out the apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable night in with a home cooked meal. With U.K. T.V , a DVD player and free wifi.
The area was safe for young children and the two 18 year old teenage girls with us were able to go out to clubs and bars with no problems. A very safe and crime free area.
We would certainly come back again and have recommended the apartment and Marina area to friends and family.
I would not change anything. Our deposit was back in our account within a few days of our return and both Kim the apartment owner and her local representative Sandra could not have been nicer or more helpful.
Thank you so much for a lovely time.
Frank and Fiona Starkey and family.

The apartment was beautifully (but still practically) furnished. A lot of thought has gone into making your stay as pleasurable as possible (ie beach towels supplied which do take up a valuable chunk of your luggage weight allowance!). The kitchen was extremely well-equipped (the coffee machine was a much appreciated added bonus!) The rooms were spacious and beds very comfy. The balcony was also spacious and shady which is a welcome relief when you 've been in the sun all day. There was plenty of maps and leaflets for days out and restaurants. Even though it was height of the season when we went - the pool was lovely and quiet - there only seemed to be a handful of people each time we went so we could easily get sunbeds (they were comfy too!) We were delighted that the apartment was so accessible to the main beach and other smaller beaches, plus the marina, the old town and a large supermarket. We didn't hire a car and were pleased that one was not necessary at all. The only slight problem we had was getting through the main door of the apartment block - not sure if it was the key or the lock but there was a definite "knack" to it! The Housekeeper, Sandra, was the perfect person to meet and greet you - she was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. I would recommend the Seafaris Dolphin watching - it was fantastic!! We did a 3 hour Kayak trip to the Grottoes and a beautiful deserted beach - only undertake this trip if you are strong, have stamina and don't get sea sick!!! All in all - fantastic apartment and fantastic holiday - would definitely recommend.
