Resort Summary

The centre of Lagos, known as the ‘old town’, is small enough so you feel at home, but big enough to have lots to see and do. As well as a wide range of shops to browse, there are two big markets held in the area each month. These give you the opportunity to take a leisurely wander around the stalls and pick up locally grown fruits and vegetables, traditional hand-crafted items and souvenirs.

A good selection of restaurants can be found in the old town area, as well as along the main beachfront and by the marina. Many of these serve traditional Portuguese favourites of freshly caught fish and seafood dishes cooked in aromatic herbs and spices. You’ll find laid-back beachside lounges and family-friendly pubs and bars where you can take the kids for a bite to eat and relax with a few drinks.

Lagos is well-known for its busy nightlife and is a popular party destination. When the sun goes down lively late-night bars and clubs open up. Most of the big venues lie along the main beach strip, where you can keep on partying until sunrise.
