What's not to love about Lagos?

Haunting bone churches and 500-year-old fortresses mingle with irresistible beachfronts to make Lagos a true gem of the Algarve. Days are all about tanning and touring bustling fish markets or medieval sights. Evenings are a delicious mix of sizzling sardines and Moorish stews in rustic tavernas. And the nights? Well, they can get just a tad hedonistic, what with all those backpacker bars and beer-clinking cantinas. Lagos holiday rentals can cater to every crowd. You could crank up the luxury with a pool-side villa in the hills or opt for a romantic beach cottage close to the sands.

Looking to the seas in Lagos

Lagos holiday rentals close to the beach aren't just great because they get you on the sands first thing in the morning. They can also be the perfect pad for launching adventures on the Portuguese seas. Dolphin-spotting is right up there. Countless tour organisers line the marina, touting trips on speedy RIBs to spot bottlenoses poking above the waves. Don't let the adrenaline drop after that. Surfing lessons, coastal kayaking trips and even boating excursions into deep grottoes that cut through the cliffs are also possible.

A break from the sun in Lagos

If you can pull yourself away from the tanning sessions on Praia da Batata and Meia Praia – 2 of the top beaches in Lagos town – there's a whole load of history and heritage to get through in this corner of the Algarve. You can join adventurers like Vasco da Gama in the Portuguese Discoveries Wax Museum on the marina, swashbuckling your way over the seven seas to colonies in India and beyond. Or, you can hit the Viva de Lagos Science Centre, where younger ones will be spellbound by hands-on submarine games and animatronic monsters from the Jurassic age.

Lagos the hotspot

Midsummer mercury readings in Lagos can easily slide past 30 degrees, and the months of June, July and August hardly see any rainfall. Those are the times that most sun-seekers and families looking for fun on the beaches head down south, eager for Lagos holiday rentals with pools, or a location that's near the sands. Independent travellers, surfers and culture buffs might be better waiting for the autumn. Locals often call that the best time of year, when the Atlantic is still warm and the cooler air makes adventuring a tad more bearable.

Have the camera at the ready in Lagos

Lagos's amber-tinted beaches, and high cliffs of sandstone and scrub, form some of the most dramatic coastal stretches in the Algarve. Be sure to snap shots from the tops of Farol da Ponta da Piedade, where needle-like rock spires shoot from the ocean, hiding beaches like Praia da Batata and its cerulean waters between their coves. You could see some amazing creatures – bottlenose dolphins are regular arrivals. Meanwhile, the long Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park unfolds to the west. Wave-bashed bays and soaring lookout points over the Atlantic abound there.
