Located on the south west coast of Portugal, Lagos is one of the oldest towns in the Algarve. Just 10 miles from Portimao and 50 miles from Faro, the town is a historic seaport, thriving market town and attractive beach resort. The town itself is a fishing harbour set in a beautiful bay and surrounded by crumbling walls. Holiday packages to Lagos give visitors the chance to enjoy the real Portugal in a vibrant atmosphere together with charm and sophistication. The old pedestrianised old town is a maze of narrow cobbled streets with whitewashed houses, attractive squares, beautiful architecture, cultural and historical attractions including museums and churches.
Lagos has a wide range of beaches ranging from small secluded cove to the vast expanses of the amazing Meia Praia.

There are many beaches found on the promontory to the south of the town. This coast offers a mix of tiny coves, caves, grottos and strange rock formations. Read more »
