Lagos — 30 nights

The allure of the beaches and the town's historical center draw visitors to Lagos, a coastal destination in the Barlavento region of the Algarve.
Get out of town with these interesting Lagos side-trips: Olhos de Agua (Praia da Falesia & Praia dos Olhos de Água), Albufeira (Speed Boats Tours, Centro Historico de Albufeira, &more) and Sagres (Fortaleza de Sagres & Cape Saint Vincent). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 17th (Wed) at Slide & Splash - Parque Aquatico - Water Slide Park. The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Ponta da Piedade, get in on the family fun at Zoomarine Algarve, take in the waterfront activity at Praia do Porto de Mos, and kick back and relax at Praia Dona Ana.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Lagos route maker tool.

Occupying the southernmost portion of Portugal's mainland, Algarve is wholeheartedly devoted to tourism and continuously ranks among Europe's top holiday destinations. Nearly 10 million annual visitors include Algarve on their itineraries, drawn mostly by the region's developed coastline, boasting nearly 200 km (125 mi) of impeccable beaches. Farther away from the water, the region offers an extensive network of hiking trails, ideal for active vacationers seeking a chance to explore a rugged southwestern corner of Europe once considered the very end of the world. If you need a few urban things to do on your vacation, head for the regional capital Faro, featuring a lively Old Town full of plazas, pedestrian lanes, and outdoor cafes.
