Marina Park is a delightfully spacious complex on the Algarve coastline, located within walking distance of the Lagos Marina. Build in 2005, and with views extending over both the coastline and the Espinhaco do Cao Mountains, a rental apartment in Marina Park, Lagos is a hugely pleasurable place to be. Apartments are located right next to the beach, and within a mile of the city walls of Lagos.
Relaxing in the sun in Marina Park is a great way to spend a holiday, either around one of the communal swimming pools, on the tennis court or in one of the large leisure areas. There is also a great bar in Marina Park, but for those looking for a great night out, it is very easy and cheap to get a taxi to and from Lagos town centre from a Marina Park apartment.
However, you are very unlikely to spend the whole of your holiday in and around the comfort of your Marina Park apartment. The attractions of nearby Lagos town and the glorious beach of Meia Praia and the unspoilt beauty of the mountains will undoubtedly temp you out. The beach at Meia Praia is a beautifully clean, wide sand beach, and is easily within walking distance of a Marina Park apartment. With 5km of sand on which to place your towel and excellent facilities for windsurfing, kite-surfing and surfing, beach lovers will be perfectly content. The most photographed beach in the whole of the Algarve, Praia Dona Ana is located just a few miles to the west too.
There is plenty to entertain children whilst on a Marina Park holiday, with Lagos Zoo just 5km away as well as plenty of sporting activities in the region including fishing, water skiing, cycling, horse riding and parasailing. The Palmares Golf Course is located just a few kilometres away too, which is open to members of the public all year round, just ensure you bring your handicap certificate.
Lagos Town is a magnificent historic town. There are many sights to see, from the ancient town walls to the stunning Church of San Antonio. There are plenty of museums, galleries and exhibitions going on throughout the town, and a huge range of top-class shops and restaurants to enjoy. If you take a Marina Park apartment for any length of time, you will undoubtedly get to know Lagos town very well.
The climate of the Algarve is a huge factor in making the region such a popular holiday destination. During the summer, conditions are ideal, with the long, hot days from May until September reaching up to 40˚C at their peak. Even the short, dry winters are warm, with temperatures very rarely dropping below 15˚C, meaning the vast majority of attractions remain open all year.
Reaching an apartment in Marina Park, Lagos is relatively easy. There are no end of cheap flights from Britain to Faro International Airport (FAO), and upon your arrival, there are plenty of options for airport transfers. You can either get a hire car from the airport, catch a train from Faro to Lagos or hire a taxi from Faro to the front door of your Marina Park apartment.
