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.

The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Ponta Da Piedale, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, stroll through Praia Dona Ana, and enjoy the sand and surf at Falesia Beach.
