Lagos Travel Guide

Lagos Travel Guide, Lagos, Portugal (B)

Lagos is a little dream of a town in the Algarve region of Portugal’s southern coast. While you wouldn’t call Lagos sleepy, it is certainly less densely populated by tourists and resorts than other towns in the region (like Albufeira), which is what appealed to us when we were looking for a relaxing beach holiday. Long days reclining on beach chairs and jumping off boats, and warm nights cruising promenades and eating fine food beckoned.

We spent five nights at the beginning of July 2013 in this ancient maritime town, with a night in Faro to start.

To get to Lagos we flew into nearby Faro, which is the closest airport, and connected by train. Flights from London with Ryan Air were €138.70 return each, and cost three hours of the ultra low-budget airline feeling. Flights on the same route, same airline, for the same time of year, will now set you back €170 per person return.

If you are staying over in Faro like we did, or if you are just going straight to the train station, you can either get a bus or a taxi for the roughly 7km journey from the airport to the city centre. A bus will take around 15 minutes and cost €2.50 and a taxi will take about five to six minutes and cost around €10. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
