Nearby Places to Explore

 

Alvor:

Alvor is a quaint village of cobbled streets with a 16th-century parish church boasting a fine Manueline portal featuring a round arch and abstract floral motifs. There are some lovely golden stretches of sand towards Portimão, most notably the small cove of Praia dos Três Irmãos with its magnificent red cliffs.

 
Portimão:
Portimão is the main commercial centre of the western Algarve, with plenty of shops, bars and cafes in its centre. The municipal museum has regular local and national exhibitions covering art, history and culture. Praia da Rocha is the main tourist beach with an adjoining boat marina offering a choice of bars and restaurants.
 
Salema:
A picturesque village 17km west of Lagos. Salema is named after the fish traditionally caught here. With a long sandy beach and quaint painted boats Salema is an ideal daytrip from Lagos and still has the feel of a true Portuguese fishing village.
 
Burgau:
Burgau is in the municipality of Vila do Bispo which is famous for it's connections with Henry the Navigator and his School of Navigation during the 15th century. The first thing you will notice about Burgau is the sight of a golden sandy beach enclosed by cliffs and a large restaurant at the back of the beach overlooking the water!
Burgau has changed a lot along the years but the original village centre of whitewashed houses, clustered together around the entrance to the beach really hasn't changed very much and the fishermen can still be seen mending their nets and looking after their boats beside the slipway.
Burgau is a quiet, relaxed village for most of the year with a selection of restaurants and bars to while away the evenings. During the summer months there is somewhat of a population explosion with all the new houses filling up and getting a table at a restaurant becomes something of an art form!
 
Villa do Bispo:
The main hub of the south western corner of the Algarve, this town provides many shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. The nearby beaches reward the more adventurous with stunning coastal scenery. From Villa do Bispo you can continue to Sagres at the very tip of Portugal, or take a pleasant drive north along the west coast.
 
Sagres:
Nestled on the wild cliffs dividing the south and west coasts Sagres is the most westerly mainland point in Europe and was considered at one time to be the end of the known world. There is a famous navigation school in Sagres started by Henry the Navigator, inspiration to a host of seafaring explorers who helped to give Portugal a proud nautical history. No trip to Sagres is complete without visiting the lighthouse perched on the high cliffs of Cabo São Vicente just west of the town. Sagres has a great selection of beaches including Tonel, Mareta, Martinhal and the pretty little cove of Beliche.
