Coming to the best spot in the Algarve and wondering how you’re going to spend your time? I’ve got you covered with the absolute best activities you can do in Lagos!
Go Wild on the West Coast with TJ
It’s the Algarve but not as you know it. Join TJ on his West Coast Adventure tour and you’ll explore the real Algarve – wilder and more rugged than the picture perfect beaches you’re used to! You need to be reasonably fit for this walk/hike/climb but it’s an amazing experience. TJ is such a knowledgable guide and the tour includes a sunset picnic (with wine, obvs) of delicious local produce. An absolute must do.
Walk to Luz for Lunch
There’s so many lovely walks you can do along by the coastline here but my favourite is walking from Porto De Mos beach to the pretty whitewashed village of Luz. Though slightly steep in places, this walk is suitable for pretty much all fitness levels- just make sure you bring plenty of water. The whole walk there and back, including lunch in Luz, takes about 3-4 hours including lots of stopping for photos along the way. If that doesn’t appeal to you, you can always do a shorter walk along the coastline, stopping when you get to the hill overlooking Luz.
It’s probably the main reason you’re here so don’t neglect it. For my favourite Lagos beaches, check out this post.
Take a Kayak or Boat Tour
The coastline around Lagos is truly stunning with soaring cliffs, hidden coves and rock formations. The best way to see it all is from the water so rent a kayak and go explore or take a boat trip for a more leisurely option.
Lagos is a surfing town with easy access to both the South and West Atlantic coasts. With heaps of surf schools based around Lagos, it’s easy to find one that suits you. Try Extreme Algarve or check out Bura Surfhouse; they have an ace Surf Yoga Wine package which brought me to Lagos in the first place!
