The Algarve region
The Algarve is Portugal's most popular tourist region with its beautiful beaches and hidden coves. The name Algarve is a derivative of "al-gharb" an Arab word meaning "land beyond", named by the Moors after they conquered the Iberian Peninsula in 711.
Much of the Algarve is relatively unspoiled, with its long sandy beaches. The far west coast is more rugged with steep tracks down to the beaches, limestone cliffs and weird, erosion formed caves and rock formations springing picturesquely out of the water.. The climate is ideal for year-round holidays, the winter is very warm during the day, but can become rather chilly at night; January/February can sometimes be quite wet. The summer is very hot, however, there is often a breeze that makes the heat more bearable.
Lagos was an important Roman settlement called "Lacobriga" and a variety of ancient Roman ruins remain including the old slave market. In the fifteenth century Henry the Navigator made Lagos into a ship building centre and continuing the maritime tradition, there is now a modern and well equipped marina.
Strolling along the dragon tooth paving through the maze of winding tiny backstreets you will find an abundance of restaurants and bars, antique shops and local art shops. The restaurants offer a variety of fish and seafood dishes, traditional Portuguese dishes such as Cataplana (a dish of mixed seafood steamed with chicken, pork, bacon and herbs) and frango piri-piri (grilled chicken in a very spicy sauce) should not be missed.
Lagos has 5 different beaches, the largest being Meia Praia, a 5 kilometer stretch of golden sand, where there are watersport facilities available and sun-beds and sunshades for hire. Along the front in Lagos there are plenty of boat trips available that take you around the rock formations and grottoes or out to sea to watch the dolphins in their natural environment.
