Quaint town that is yet to feel too touristy

I was initially quite worried about heading to Lagos on my own, but on getting there I found the people to be pleasant. There is a few hostels in the old town with had numerous english speaking europeans and americans. All the bar staff were easy to talk to and made for a relaxing night out. Plenty of bars/restaurants about serving food/beer at resonable price (€3 pint beer €2.50 bottle lager, €7 large salad, €9 filling meal) The streets around Lagos are very narrow and people laid back. It reminded me of some of the Cornish towns I travel to. I went to Lagos for the surfing and although the wind picked up throughout my stay, I wasn't disappointed, purchasing a 3 day surf lessons/safari. Adverts for boat trips / dolphin spotting / mountain biking and others were seen around the place making sure you'd unlikely get bored on a week or longer holiday.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Relaxed atmosphere, Short transfer to good surf beaches

Lagos has everything, a variety of beaches our favourite would be Praia do Mos which is a lovely small beach with two lovely restaurants to choose from for food. Food fabulous and such good value especially if you like fish. The old town is charming with a wonderful selection of restaurants and bars. Nice shopping area also. Bus terminus giving you access to other nearby resorts. Lovely marina also.

This really is a great town to the west of the Algarve. The Old Town is like a maze of tiny streets each with its own delights of either shops, bars or restaurants. There is also an extremely picturesque marina which not only compliments the town but is also an extremely enjoyable place to visit in itself. Do some homework before you go and seek out some of the incredible restaurants. We were in heaven in each of the two we located. This is my favourite resort on the Algarve and I will look no further than here for my base in the future.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Casinha do Petisco restaurant on Rua da Oliveira. Traditional Portugeuse food and what an experience. Be prepared to queue up outside as they don't take bookings and it is small but you will be rewarded for doing so.

A home away from home

This is our eighth year at Lagos, sad as it may appear to some, we love the place. It has some great beaches, loads of restaurants, of which our favourite is the Chicken Piri Piri, just at the back of the main square, they have an excellent Tourist menu starting at 14 Euros, but you will come away stuffed - ask for Pedro. All the pavements in the town are set with small blocks of shiny stones, so watch what shoes you wear, especially if there has just been a shower. There is a great marina, where you can watch the world go by day or night, the English all seem to congregate either at the Oasis or Happy Jacks, both good drinking and eating places, where you will get a friendly welcome.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Friendly, welcoming, clean and not built up.

Not overly commercialised and very friendly.

True Portugal or close to it. Not Blackpool abroad, restaurants serving good traditional food and drinks at reasonable prices. English spoken by everyone we spoke to but try Portugese as they will appreciate the effort. Well worth the escape from the more frequented resorts.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Food, drinks, prices and the locals.

Top class

Beautiful spot. This is our second time back and won't be our last. Has all the advantages of some of the bigger spots such as Vilamoura and Albufeira but is much more friendly and certainly not as expensive

Fantastic Destination !!!

I love Lagos ! ...the old town itself is charming & not too developed with many great restaurants & bars which are not too expensive. If you have a car, explore the amazing unspoilt western algarve region with it's stunning blue flag beaches popular with surfers & also visit the many small traditional Portuguese whitewashed villages which have their own individual character. I can't wait to return ...hopefully soon !

The best thing about my stay was ...

Stunning scenery, fantastic food, relaxed atmosphere.
