Villas in Lagos suit all budgets and bring comfort, convenience and character.

In any case, a private swimming pool and lounge area is almost guaranteed!
Travellers and activities
Lagos and the surrounding area offers a wealth of high-calibre activities for families. Your kid’s will go wild for Lago’s highly rated Slide & Splash water park, with multiple different types of slides for all ages, a wave pool, jacuzzi and kids water area. Then why not spend a fantastic day at Zoo de Lagos, where you can meet 150 different animal species in their natural habitats? The animals are really well-kept, and cleanliness is exemplary. Don’t forget your swimming gear – at the end you can swim in a pool with a glass divide with penguins on the other side!Lagos for beach lovers
Some of the Algarve's most celebrated beaches are located in and around Lagos. Two kilometres south of the town centre, Praia do Camilo, with its outcrops of fantastic rock formations, is a postcard favourite. This sheltered slither of sand is illuminated by a mantle of colourful flowers on the cliff edge above. In contrast to the coves around Lagos, Meia Praia offers three miles of golden sand, and this is where you can easily find your own place in the sun. There are several beach bars along the beach offering luscious dishes from freshly caught fish.Lagos for party goers
While the Lagos nightlife in the height of season is pretty chilled compared to the likes of Ibiza, it can and does get raucous. The bars are mostly small independent outfits located in old buildings in the heart of the old town. Joes Garage is the top spot for the young and energetic, offering a cool party atmosphere with dancing on the bar and tables. Roskos is where you go for urban chichi. The bar serves top brand drinks and cocktails and there are comfortable boothed seating areas where you chill and listen to the resident DJ. For late-nighters, Grand Cafe is the town’s big club, open until 5 am, and where everybody heads when the rest of the town shuts down at around 2 am.
Listen up history buffs, Portugal is the oldest country in Europe, with the same defined borders since 1139!
