Farol do Cabo São Vicente (Cape St. Vincent lighthouse) built in 1846, it´s one of the most powerful lighthouses in Europe and offers a terrific view! At the same time, visit Sagres and you understand why people once thought that this was the end of the world!

Igreja de São Sebastião (St. Sebastian’s church) Originally a 14th century chapel, it was made a church and dedicated to St. Sebastian in 1463. The church contains a large 18th century statue of Our Lady of Glory that came from Brazil and a 16th century crucifix that is said to have been used in the famous Alcácer-Quibir battle. From its hilltop vantage point, the church commands fabulous views over Lagos and the sea.

located in the village of Benagil, near Lagoa. Many fishermen also offer boat trips to tourists. Visiting this cave by boat is highly recommended. Near Praia de Benagil is an impressive cave, known as "Algar de Benagil". From inside this cave you will see the blue sky through an opening in the ceiling. This cave is also popular among photographers. You can hike on top of the cliffs on this beach. On the right of the beach here is a hill, with a small plateau from where you can jump into the water. There are varying heights to jump from and will give you a rush of adrenaline. Access to the beach is via a steep road. If you want a parking, come early in the morning or late afternoon.

Food Scene
FAVORITE number 3 Right in the middle of Lagos... The best pizzas (wood oven) in Lagos and probably in Algarve. Pasta and other dishes are excellent. Nice staff and good service. If you want to avoid queuing then book a table !! You can also order pizza and take home. Phone +351 282 760 043

FAVORITE number 2 Good grilled food and good price. Only lunches! The restaurant is situated outside Lagos, so you need a car, but it is worth the short trip from Lagos and before Odiaxere. The restaurant can be a little difficult to see, but when you see all the cars parked, on your right side, you have found it. The kids will love the small farm just inside the restaurant. You can eat inside or outside the restaurant, and if you want to avoid the queue eat your lunch later, 14.00 or 15.00. You can also reserve a table, order early or preferably the day before. Estrada Nacional 125 Sítio da Torre, 8600-256 Odiáxere, Phone number +351 282 798 205, Closed Sundays.

100m from the house..... The beaches in Lagos are some of the best in the Algarve and include the wonderful 4kms of golden sands along Meia Praia, just 100m in front of the house. Batata Beach is just across the road from the town centre, and Dona Ana Beach is spectacular with rock formations nestling beneath the cliffs. My favorite is the small, sheltered Camilo Beach on the way to Ponta de Piedade.

Slide and Splash is Portugal´s largest water park and it is widely considered to be one of the best in Europe. Between Lagos and Albufeira, the park is easily accessible by car or bus. You can pre-purchase tickets at Pingo Doce or book on the website, as well as bus tickets. The nearest bus stop is next to the roundabout before the "Hotel Vila Gale", daily 9:30 am, except on Sundays. My favorite attraction is the "Black Hole".
