Planning your summer trip to Lagos – Part 2

Tags: lagos

Planning your summer trip to Lagos is not a trifling thing. Last time, we spoke of a few reasons why you should really consider visiting. Today, let’s sit back and visit the top destinations in this beautiful Portuguese seaside resort.

Located 90 kilometers from Faro, the capital city of the Algarve, Lagos is – and has been for some time - one of the top seaside resorts in the country. It’s also quite accessible, even if you are not traveling by car, because you can employ Faro Airport transfers to take you there and back.

One of the reasons people come to Lagos is the spectacular coastline. Lagos contains some of the best beaches in the Algarve. With its fantastic rocks and fine sand, the flowers covering the edge of the cliff and the cerulean ocean below, Praia de Dona Ana is our favorite beach.

Another beautiful beach just behind the Lagos Marina (which is a site you should definitely never miss) is Meia Praia. Its name might mean “half a beach”, but actually this is the longest beach in the area and provides a lot of excellent sand and water-sports facilities.

History comes to life at Forte Ponta da Bandeira, a 17th-century fortress built to defend the harbor of Lagos. (You might have guessed this: Lagos has had a long history as a seaside port). The remains of the fort can be visited, along with an 18th-century small chapel covered in azulejos, where there’s also an exhibit that celebrates the Portuguese golden age of discoveries.

If you want a fun day out for you and the kids, you can always opt for the Lagos Zoo. for just 10-14 EUR, you can visit a beautiful park that’s home to a true family of exotic animals. Plus there’s a restaurant there that provides traditional food.

What do you think about Lagos so far?
