Lagos still has a fairly large part of the old city walls left intact.
They really add the the nice vibe of the town and you should make sure to pass by them and have a look at them while you are strolling along the river in Lagos.

Meia praia is the long wide beach that stretches east from Lagos.
This is very much the beach of the young crowd, especially the part of it that is close to town.
There you have party party beach bars, beach vollay and a hip hippie crowd hanging out.

Near Lagos you can find a spectacular coastline. You hardly can see it from landside. On the quai of Lagos Harbour you get picked up by boats to show you the beauty of the coast. Most tours are held in Portuguese, Spanish, English and German by the driver.
On the tour you'll see the west beaches, the impressive golden rock arches and the caves.

Believed to be the End of the World, until the discovery and European colonization of the Americas, this is where the cliffs of the most South-westerly point of Europe jut into the Atlantic Ocean.
From the Phoenicians rounding the cape to head north for the tin islands, to Sir Francis Drake, heading east to Cadiz, to modern-day yachtsmen, tankers and freighters, this was and still is an important navigational reference point.
Perched above the edge of the rolling waves is a lighthouse, whose beam can be seen up to 32 miles away at sea. This landmark is set within the remaining buildings of the 17th Century Franciscan Convent. Originally a hermitage founded in the 13th Century A.D., the convent was established in the 15th Century.

The Fortress of Sagres,
What a view, from the outside just looks like a large fort? but inside its like the tardis.
I was amazed just how big it was inside? this is one of those places that is not what it seems inside.
A national monument and Natural Park .
you can expect to spend at least 2hrs here if you walk around the whole site.
But to my surprise I came across the suicide fisherman, fishing off the steep cliffs.
You got to have nerves of steel to fish like they do.
There were a few people we came across having picnics there too and explained that they spend all day there just watching the world go by.
There is an exhibition center and a 16th century Church inside, The Church of Nossa Senhora.
and the scenery is simple and unspoilt.

There are plenty of places to eat and relax and watch the world go by.

I went out on the Bom Dia for a family fishing trip for 3 hours, had a great time. The crew were very welcoming and knew their fishing. Caught loads of fish including octopus? I never knew you could catch them on rod and line.
A good afternoon was had by all; I can highly recommend a trip out with them they really did look after us...
And what makes that difference is they love their fishing too. Go you won't be disappointed.
2008 back from another trip to Lagos,done a spot of fishing again on Bom Dia,this time I took a video of the event and once again was well looked after.
For Information you now need a Fishing License for sea Fishing in Portugal, these are supplied by the companies doing the fishing trips.

This is a fantastic and exhilarating experience! Sidecar Experience run tours down to Sagres during the day and in time for the stupendous (and very popular) sunset. I've not seen anyone else offering an activity that's so unique, though I suppose it's only a matter of time. This is a fantastic idea! The motorbikes and sidecars are truly impressive machines! We'll be touring with them again next time we're in Lagos!!

If you are looking to get away from A LOT of the people in Lagos you should take a hike up the coast. Head west of the town and follow the main road up a small hill until you see signs for beach access. I can't remember the name of the first beach but it is hard to miss. There is a trail that runs along the coast for a couple miles and leads to a nice lighthouse and eventually to some of the "grottos". It is a great walk and even if you don't go the whole way you can still get great views of the cliffs and rocky islands.

I was beat. I was tired. We were walking the town center in astonishment, buildings falling apart in age like my muscles were falling apart in fatigue. Bladders were at the tipping point. A beer as an excuse for bathroom permission was in need. We sat, there, within the city walls with thoughts of rest riddling through our minds. I saw the sun give me this shadow and here is where I stole it and tranfered it into pixels which made it into your head through your sockets.
