    Take a bottle of wine and arrive about 30 minutes before sunset. You'll park just a short walk along the paved walking path where you can sit and enjoy the view. Beautiful!

    This is one of my favorite spots in Lagos! The beach is so clean and the water was cool and clear! Beautiful people everywhere! A nice concession/Cafe is located directly on the beach and has fresh fish daily with a variety other food choices! Full bar! Can have drinks on beach with a Togo cup! Really a great way to spend a sunny day!

    A small but absolutely wonderful beach with great sand. Coming down the steep steps it looks very small but through the tunnel at the north end is access to an additional half of the beach you can’t see when coming down. At low tide you can access both sides of the beach without the cave. The swimming here is not great but it’s a quiet place to take in some sun and still be able to walk into the water to cool off. A great option for a half day or more and the setting is pretty amazing.

    Beach opens to open ocean. No rocks or cliffs to obstruct walk. Dunes behind. A bracing good walk as waves were often strong. Love the Dunlins that scurried with the incoming tide for tidbits.

    Visited Zoo in Lagos and we were pleasantly surprised. The Zoo is located a 20 min taxi ride from Lagos (cost us €18.50 for 6 people)

    This is quite a leisurely way to spend a day, and this Zoo while quite small is unique in many ways.

    There are numerous feeding stations, where you can feed the animals, and the layout and shade is excellent.

    You will need 4 to 5 hours here to really enjoy it, and there are ample opportunities to eat or drink. Bring your swimming gear as there is a nice surprise at the end.

    Worth the walk or drive out to this point. Take a hike along the boardwalk to the west for the spectacular views. Absolute must to walk down the stairway to the east to see the grotto barches up close, especially if you are not able to do a grotto your by boat due to wild winds. Only down side....parking can be a challenge and crowds can be a bit unsettling.

    We enjoyed our two visits to the old town in Lagos while staying in Armancao De Pera:a nice contrast with the modern tourist developments which predominate on the Algarve.A pleasure strolling along the paved streets overlooked by colourful old houses,and enjoying eating and drinking in the restaurants.

    Although we didn’t actually get right down to the dam the views to it from the top road were stunning. The area all around here is lovely and well worth a car tour. We went from Alvor up into the hills to the dam, then down west to the little coastal road, passing a great wetland area with good path down the side, which we walked in our eternal search again for the elusive purple gallinule!

    What a day we had! Beautiful surroundings and lovely weather greeted our visit
    Maria our host was brilliant! She took us through the wine making process from start to finish. Made it fun and simple to understand.
    The wine are brilliant, we had a lovely relaxing lunch based around tasting three types of the wine made? The food was lovely and the wines are excellent
    Can’t thank Maria enough for her company
    Highly recommend this place.

    This is a great little place. Really well laid out, friendly staff, lots of different activities to do. My 6 and 3 year old loved it. Outside spaces were lovely and perfect on a rainy day where we could pop in and out. Really reasonably priced, under 6s are free. We spent a couple of hours there but could happily have spent longer.

    If you go to Lagos you have to visit this church, I think the most important in the city
    It is a typical Portuguese church, located in a wide and beautiful square, it is old but was partially restored after a fire
    It is worth noting the strange mural behind the altar, where a battle between orange and purple angels is depicted.
    It is not a grandiose church but it is worth it to see its tiles
    In the sacristy there is a collection of images from the 18th century, one of which highlights the image of the Menino Jesus Rei, dressed in period costumes.
    Just south of the church there is a restored stretch of the Lagos city walls, it is worth following the walk through the city from there

    Lagos was a center for the collection and export of slaves to the Portuguese colonies of America
    It was a city that grew up with this trade and this old building is where transactions, business, sales and purchases were made.
    The building has a decadent colonial look, like many historical buildings in Portugal it suffers from good preservation and maintenance.
    However, today it is an excellent museum that talks about the Portuguese colonies, about colonization trips with some good interactive panels
    It also has a good collection of jewelry, furniture and other objects from its distant colonies.
    And he explains how the slave trade was carried out, his visit is very instructive
