The Algarve region
Lagos is a beautiful town in the western Algarve. It is a traditional town with its origins dating as far back as 200 years BC. Lagos has retained its Portuguese charm and heritage and the older parts of town are still bound by its 16th century walls.
The weather in the Algarve is warm year-round, enjoying approximately 300 days of sunshine, with fairly steady temperatures. On hot summer days in July and August, the Atlantic offers a refreshing cool down.
The beaches in Lagos are some of the best in the Algarve and include the wonderful 4kms of golden sands along Meia Praia, Batata Beach just across the road from the town centre, Dona Ana Beach with its spectacular rock formations nestling beneath the cliffs, the small, sheltered Camilo Beach on the way to Ponta de Piedade and the beautiful sandy bay of Porto de Mós Beach.
The apartment is in a superb location within a few minutes of the award winning marina and ten minutes walk, across the pedestrianised footbridge to the historic old town. There are so many things to do in Lagos and there really is something for everyone.
Eating Out - Lagos marina has a good selection of bars and restaurants and the old town caters for all tastes with plenty of Portuguese restaurants as well as Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai and Mediterranean. There are also some excellent beach restaurants along Meia Praia.
Beaches - the nearest beach to the apartment is Meia Praia and this is the most famous of the Lagos beaches due to its sheer size, wonderfully clean sand, lovely beach bars and proximity to the town. Meia Praia is an easy 10 minute walk from the apartment.
Golf - the apartment is an ideal base for golfers with the area served by some excellent golf courses including:
- Palmares - 5 minutes drive
- BoaVista - 10 minutes drive
- 5* Le Meridien Penina Golf Resort in Alvor - 15 minutes drive
- Parque de Floresta - 20 minutes drive
Shopping - follow the cobbled streets with lots of small, independent shops selling local crafts, ceramics, fashions, leather goods and local produce.
Motor Sports - Autodromo do Algarve Race Track is between Lagos and Alvor and hosts lots of events including Superbike Championships, FIA GT1 World Championships and track days for motorbikes and cars. The complex also includes the 'Kartodrome' go kart track.
Water Parks - Slide and Splash water park is near Lagoa in central Algarve (approximately 20 minutes from Lagos). They operate a transfer service with pick-up points in Lagos to get you to the park when it opens, with return trips later in the day.
Dolphin Safaris and Boat Trips - boat trips to the caves, to see dolphins, to fish plus cruises along the stunning Algarve coastline.
Sea Kayaking - a great way to explore the caves and admire the coastline.
Mountain biking - there are lots of trails for mountain biking in Lagos.
Sailing - sailing courses and sailing trips available along the Algarve coast.
Watersports - Lagos and the western coast of the Algarve offer the best conditions for all watersports including surfing, wakeboarding, kite surfing and windsurfing.
Marina Club - gymnasium, indoor heated swimming pool with Jacuzzi, sauna, group classes, massages and treatments.
Lagos Zoo - lots of animals and birds to see and a "petting farm" where you can feed some of the animals.
Tourist Train - a great way to travel around the town to get a feel for the area, which can be really useful on arrival, as well as providing cheap travel throughout the holiday. The train departs from the marina, runs along the waterfront, up the hill to Praia Dona Ana and stops at Ponta da Piedade before turning round to go back. The journey lasts around 30 minutes and is reasonably priced.

Having travelled extensivley over the last 40 years visiting over 30 countries I must admit every time you book there is at least a few minor and sometimes major problems.On this occassion from the details of travel from the airport to the apartment,the apartment itself and the location everything was perfect.The apartment itelf has everything require to have a perfect holiday.
We do not cook on holiday apart from a sandwhich at lunch but if you wanted to have a self catering holiday everything is available at the apartment.
There are more than sufficient resteraunts available in the marina and many good eateries available in the old town.
I will be returning to Portugal in Sept/Oct and will definatly stay at the same apartments if available
