Destination guide

Sun and sea at Lagos holiday lettings

Lagos is unquestionably one of the chart-toppers of the Algarve. Like a tailor-made cocktail of all the ingredients you're looking for from a break on the Portuguese coast, Lagos hugs the coast surrounded by sandy white beaches and rugged bays like cliff-backed Batata Beach. Inland, there are earthy fish markets and ceramics workshops bursting with azulejos tiles. Its cobbled old town – a place that was well-known to the explorers of the Age of Adventure – is ringed by 17th-century walls and fortifications and filled with cantinas that sizzle with seafood. Throw in dolphin watching, sailing and an unbridled nightlife and it's easy to see why Lagos holiday rentals are such a draw.

Attractions near Lagos holiday lettings

On the rare days when you don't want to put your towel down on one of the 5 beaches within easy reach of Lagos town, or hit the pearly green-blue waters of the Atlantic on a boat, how about a whirlwind of Age of Adventure history and family attractions instead? Cue the Wax Museum of Discovery, where the whole family can come face-to-face with recreations of great seafarers like Vasco da Gama and other iconic Portuguese sailors. Then there's the Lagos Zoo. Hidden up in the olive-peppered hills, it's home to long-necked flamingos, South American vicugna, meerkats and oodles more.


Things to do near holiday homes in Lagos

Budding dolphin watchers, sunbathers, surfers and cave explorers would do well to search for their Lagos holiday rentals close to the coast. It's a real wonderland of cliff-backed coves and wave-washed bays, offering chances to ride on longboards or bounce over the swells to catch glimpses of bottlenoses and carved rock grottoes alike. Culture vultures might prefer a pad in the old town centre. Here you can explore the fish markets, enjoy cooking classes in Algarvian seafood or visit the local history museum set in a gilded baroque church.


Best time to travel to Lagos holiday homes

Lagos is one of the hottest and driest corners of Portugal. Sitting almost at the tip of the Iberian Peninsula, it's about as far south as it's possible to get in the country, without heading for islands like Madeira, that is. The upshot is a climate that includes plenty of sun and soaring mercury levels. Things warm up in springtime in April and May, with beach-worthy days in the 20s. Then comes the popular summer. Most folk seek out Lagos holiday rentals between June and August to catch the temperatures rising to over 30. Autumn, in September and October, is also balmy and dry

Dolphins make regular appearances in the currents and there are dramatic vistas of rock needles shooting from the sea, all interspersed with long stretches of inviting honey-coloured sand.
