Beaches in and near to Praia da LuzOur GuestbookOn this page..Notes on (nearby) Lagos

Just ten minutes from Praia da Luz is one of the Algarve's largest towns. Lagos is a major fishing port and marina yet rich in history and interest. It was the home of the first slave market which can still be seen standing on the riverbank. The statue of Henry the Navigator overlooks the promenade displaying the towns close association with the sea. There are plenty of lively bars and good shops. The old town is particularly nice with plenty of street cafes and restaurants. A good and varied night life to be had here. Make sure you pick up one of the free maps, available most everywhere, to get the best out of the town. There are several very large supermarkets mostly situated on the outskirts of the town. Coming from Luz the Intermarche is most accessible. Fairly regular buses run from the square by the church in Luz but they do tend to finish early so check out the timetable at the bus stop when you travel. A taxi will be around €10 depending where you are going to in Lagos.
