The Town

Lagos itself is a beautiful town and has charm and character aplenty. The residents are friendly and English is widely spoken. However do not be afraid to practice your Portuguese, remember a little helps a lot.


The apartment is a 10 minute walk to the old town, some may say 5 minutes but I am walking disabled and can do it in 10 minutes at a not too blistering pace. It is mostly a flat walk and can take you along the promenade. Luckily for those of us who do not want to wander far there is a supermarket literally a stones throw away as is the cafe Frescos which forms a corner of the apartment complex. It serves food drinks and caters to a variety of tastes.

We are a 10 minute walk from the Marina where you will find shops, restaurants, boat hire and much more. So whether you want to dive, search for dolphins, fish, cruise or hire your own charter boat the Marina businesses will be able to offer this. Do not forget your trip to the Grottoes along the coast which are spectacular.

There are two main beaches within walking distance: The Praia da Batata along the Avenida and the Meia Preia, a beautiful stretch of sandy beach with beach bars for refreshments, a car park is also available for those who wish. Further afield there are many beaches to chose from and you are only limited by your desire and transport.


Locally there are restaurants, shops and everything you would expect from a busy town. The Old town has plenty of eating choices, you will not be stuck for choice and there are prices to suit each pocket.


The Algarve is renowned for it's golf courses, taking advantage of the pleasing climate and easy links to the UK. Within a 10 minute drive from Lagos are the courses: Boavista, Parque de Floresta, Belavista and Palmares, with others slightly further afield.

Golf Widows :)

For those of us not totally enamoured of golf, not only does the apartment complex have it's own indoor heated pool, jacuzzi and gym but Lagos is well served by many massage therapists and beauticians, so being home alone could be a wonderful experience.

Some ideas to spoil yourself:

These are just a few of the local businesses, unfortunately I have not had the chance to sample these so cannot vouch for them. Please use the links provided as a guide only.
