Located on the Western Algarve, Lagos is a popular destination for visitors from all over the world in summer and winter alike. Within the ancient city walls, all the old charm of old town Lagos is still evident with daytime providing many shops and restaurants to visit in the cobbled, pedestrianised town centre. By night the town transforms into a bustling cosmopolitan nightlife with many restaurants and bars. There is something for everyone - the restaurants offer anything from the best Portuguese and Algarve cuisine to Indian to Swiss and even Dutch food. The bars vary from the quiet lounge bars to the unusual to the plain outrageous - all open until the early hours of the morning!
A ten minute walk and a short ferry ride later will get you to Meia Praia, a stunning beach in Lagos which offers sand under foot for miles and miles, various watersports activites including windsurfing, kayaking, banana rides, ringos and, of course wakeboarding (that's where we come in!)
Another ten minute walk and you can visit Marina de Lagos where you can take an array of boat trips from Dolphin watching to fishing. You can wakeboard from there (that's where we come in!), charter sailing boats and motor yachts (us too!), or take a lunch trip on an old traditional Portuguese sail boat.
By night the city of Lagos comes alive. The many restaurants offer an impressive array of cuisine choices at varying price points. The town's main streets are all pedestrianised and a walk around at night will help you to take in the atmosphere. For the night owls amongst us there's a huge choice of bars open until the early hours of the morning. After a hard days wakeboarding we'd definately recommend Joe's Garage (you'll need to ask someone) for your early drinking and then finish the night off in Zanzibar (on the main drag). The Lounge is a favourite haunt as a small chilled out bar with great music. Stevie Rays is worth a visit with the right music playing.
