    just returned from the giramar ,lagos. A 12 two bedroomed apartment complex.Accomodation was super. Well equipped premises ,toaster ,microwave,iron etc. but did not supply hair dryers. All apartments had a front and back balcony which was super and the corner ones had three . Very quite complex in a residential area, very suitable for couples and families but not for the twenties.The pool was small and very suitable to families but useless if you wanted to swim.Loads of poolside sunbeds available.
    We walked everywhere from here but if you're not a good walker you may need to use taxis which are very resonable. the praia d,Ana beach isquite near ,instead of following the signpostsyou can shorten the journey by going straight across through the houses towards the sea

    Unique Quality: i would strongly recommend this accommodattion and shall retuen again

excursions in lagos

by markhughes80

hi could any one tell me if there are any shops selling excursions in lagos and if so what excursions are there and how much are they?

Re: excursions in lagos

You have several companies selling excursions in Lagos.
In fact there are so many that most tourists get real tired of them while on holiday there as they can be very aggresive with their marketing.
Most excursions in Lagos are by boat as the coastline there is really pretty, but you have jeeptours, horseback riding tours and regular bus excursions too, plus several other trips.

If you walk down the riverside path from the marina to the fort you will be pestered about every 50 yards by those selling boat trip tickets. Some of those trips are 30 and 40 Euros if memory serves. (Never been on one.)

Having said that, a lot of the boat excursions stop soon as the sea will be getting a bit rough and the weather heading for autumn/winter.

There are any number of 'ticket shops' and agents around town. You can pay 10 Euros for a half day trip to somewhere like Monchique ot 300 for a two day trip to Seville and Gibraltar plus everything else in between.

If it's summer time you are going to be there, you won't have a problem.

There are quite a few excursions in Lagos. If you would like to look at some of them before your trip, there are a few shown on www.SimplyLagos.com and www.DiscoverSevilla.com. That may give you a good idea of what you are looking for before you get there.

Hope that helps!

Travel Tips for Lagos

More on the nearby beaches

by dlytle

The sun-soaked coast of southern Portugal is well known to holidaymakers for the quality of its beaches, resorts and golf courses. But the Algarve has a secret: it harbors plenty of deserted beaches and a whole section of coast where you can see life as it was in the region before the onslaught of tourism.

On the far western strip of the Algarve – from Lagos to Sagres and reaching up the west coast to the village of Odeceixe – is the little-known and undeveloped Vincentina Coast, a protected nature reserve of stunning, rugged beauty.

Nearby to the city of Lagos are many, many nice beaches. The main beach is Meia Praia which lies to the east of the town and is long enough that you’ll find a space, even on the most crowded summer days. West of Lagos are the pretty cove beaches, like the one in the photograph that is Praia do Camilo Beach.

Praia Dona Ana is one of the most picturesque, with its weird sandstone rock formations rising out of the sand. The beach is 650 feet long (200 m) and accessible via a stairway. It is situated in a slightly curved half-circle formed by the surrounding cliffs, and during the tourist season more visitors come here than is probably good for this beautiful spot. Unfortunately, the water here can sometimes be somewhat dirty during the tourist season. The restaurants at Praia Dona Ana provide visitors with drinks, grilled sardines, and other snacks.

Close by the harbor you can find tourist boat tours that will acquaint you with the local marine areas with the highlight being the tide and wind sculptured cliff-side caves and gardens.

Silves Castle

by Westbrook

Took about 35 minutes to drive from Lagos to Silves. Approaching from the motorway isn't as dramatic as approaching from one of the back roads, you lose the "castle rising from forest" effect.

Anyway, as castles go, this one's all right. It's got crenelated walls. Views aren't bad from the top. Best feature is probably the colour of the rock from which the whole thing was hewn.

Old Castle

by NunoF

Conquered by the Arabs in the 8th century, we can still see some fortifications that they left behind when Portuguese Kings reconquer the region... The fortifications were extended in the 16th-century.
This picture was taken just before it start to rain, this section and archway is located near the monument to the navigator Gil Eanes.
