Lagos Holidays 2021

A buzzy resort town on Portugal’s south coast, Lagos is all sun, seafood and yellow-sand beaches. Add in historic monuments and family attractions and you’ve got an unforgettable Algarve escape.

This is the Algarve on a platter. On holidays in Lagos you’ll explore incredible chunks of the coast, from grotto-filled coves to endless stretches of golden powder. You can spend hours getting lost in the town’s historic core too. Here cobbled streets are lined with centuries-old churches and encased in hulking 16th-century walls.

Walking adventures in Lagos

From gentle strolls to boots-on adventures, Lagos and its surroundings are a haven for walkers. Soak up Lagos’s stunning coastal scenery with a hike up on the cliffs. Farther west, there’s a jaw-dropping route with Atlantic views between the villages of Praia da Luz and Burgau. Away from the coast, the National Forest of Barão de São João offers tranquil trails amid pine and eucalyptus trees.

You’ll have a packed itinerary on holidays in Lagos. The Algarve bolthole has an attraction-packed waterfront and beauty spots galore.

  • Make a beeline for Avenida dos Descobrimentos, the charming, cobbled promenade that hugs the Bensafrim River. Time your stroll for sunset or grab an ice-cream for a sun-drenched afternoon walk.
  • Pinch-me views await at Ponta da Piedade. The rugged headland is known for its butterscotch cliffs, craggy grottoes and picturesque lighthouse. A hot air balloon ride is an epic way to take in the landscape.
  • Lagos punches above its weight when it comes to artwork. You’ll find a handful of avant-garde galleries and artists’ residences across town. Keep your eyes peeled for striking murals too.
  • Golfers love the Algarve and pretty Lagos holds its own. Tee off at challenging golf courses with stellar views over the water and to the distant Monchique Hills.
  • Fancy a day trip? The bucolic town of Silves is a favourite with history buffs. The ancient capital of the Algarve Kingdom, it’s home to time-honoured treasures including a labyrinthine red-brick castle.
Exploring history in Lagos

Exploring history in Lagos

You can travel back in time on holidays in Lagos. From ornate churches to a brooding fort, Lagos’s historic sites tell fascinating stories.

  • Forte da Ponta da Bandeira is a must-visit for history lovers. The mighty, 17th-century structure features a moat, a museum with art displays and well-preserved ramparts. You’ll get incredible views across Lagos too.
  • Duck inside Mercado dos Escravos for a sombre history lesson. This building was the home of a former slave market. Now it’s filled with poignant exhibitions and artworks.
  • The Museu Regional de Lagos leaves few stones unturned. Pore over historic Portuguese coins, Roman relics and displays that chronicle the history of Lagos itself.
  • Lagos is filled with sacred treasures. Architecture fans will marvel at Igreja de Santa Maria, with its striking bell tower and Renaissance-era doorway. Peek inside Igreja de Santo António to see incredible gilding and grand vaulted ceilings too.
  • Harking back to the 1600s, Castelo dos Governadores is well worth a stop. Gaze up at the imposing, crenellated walls and spot the Manueline window. The castle still bears the arms of the Kingdom of the Algarve too.
