Rudderless in Lagos

Lagos Videos

With the wind in our sails we head to the Algarve Coast. Lagos Portugal. First stop a boat ride out to the famous grottos. Oh and the beach, babes, beach volley-ball played by babes and beer…

Rudderless in Lagos. In this episode host Christopher Rudder takes to the sky parasailing over the ocean with a birds eye view of the beautiful grottos. Fish for dinner and…oh right. Beaches, babes, beach volley-ball played by babes and beer…

I’ve got two places I like to be. Portugal is one.

Lagos Eats

Lets face it, Lagos is a place for the party crowd, the retired crowd and the family crowd. The daily agenda goes something like this: Wake up late, shower, dress in or bring swimwear/swim gear, have brunch/lunch, head to a beach, sleep some more, swim, tan, read a book, partake in a beach activity/sport, shop, eat dinner and go home or go to a bar/club. Repeat. It’s Portugal so the food of preference are: fish, seafood, chicken (with peetey-peetey), pastries, fresh or canned sardines. I recommend, as did Trip Advisor, Adega da Marina. There is a line to get it but it is well worth it. Trust me.

Lagos Talks

  • Tamara Wilcox

    Lagos looks beautiful! I’m not so much into sunbathing on the beach, but the motorboat cruise through the grottos would be amazing! Nice video!

    • Thanks Tamara. Not only are the grottos beautiful, the boat ride isn’t expensive. I think it was 12 Euros…

  • Claire

    Wow Lagos looks so beautiful. The fish looks amazing. Love enjoying fresh fish

    • It really is. I’m not really a fish person. If I’m gonna eat fish it definitely has to be fresh. Fresh fish is not a problem in Lagos, or in Portugal for that matter, it’s so soooo tasty

  • Brianna @ The Casual Travelist

    Beautiful beaches, a laid back vibe and amazing food, I wouldn’t want to leave either!

    • Haha, trust me Brianna, it was hard leaving this place. We went from open beach and fresh salt air to stuffy bus heading back to Lisbon…lol

  • I’ve only been to Lisbon, but looks like I need to check out the southern coast too! Looks stunning…

    • Lisbon is definitely an amazing city in general but Lagos is a beautiful place, definitely worth a trip to spend some time.

  • Lagos looks so beautiful! Parasailing would be tons of fun. The colonial style of the city and the outdoor cafes look amazing with the ocean as their backdrop. I’ll add this to the Portugal list! 😉

    • It is beautiful Jackie. You should add it to your Portugal list. The grottos, cafes, beaches, water sports, beach sports, fresh seafood…it’s awesome.

  • Lagos looks incredible! I’m traveling to Portugal this summer and researching itinerary ideas. Looks like Lagos needs to be added to the list. I’m particularly looking forward to exploring the grottos!

    • Absolutely. I would add it to your itinerary if you can. If you end up going I’d love to hear about your time in Portugal. Enjoy!!!

  • Mags

    Lagos is gorgeous! I have never been to Portugal, but I don’t think I would ever leave a beach like that!

    • Hey Mags, it is gorgeous. Trust me after taking a few trains and plains during a typical trip, when you get to the beach place like Lagos you don’t want to leave. Leaving was hard…lol

  • Christine Cognieux

    Amazing destination!!!! Never been to Lagos!

    • Thanks Christine. It is an amazing place!!!

  • A beach like this is right up my alley! Spain is on our bucket list and after seeing this, i think we will have to take a side trip to Lagos!

    • Thanks. Well the south of Spain isn’t too far from Lagos, so it might be worth your wild 😉

  • Joe Ankenbauer

    Loved the videos! Makes me want to pack up and head over ASAP! Great Job!

    • Haha. Awesome, thank you 🙂 I’m so glad you like the videos!

  • Oh man I can’t wait to get the chance to spend WEEKS in the coastal areas of Portugal! Intense and well done with this brilliantly executed post! Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to get my hands dirty with all the outdoor activities available and SEAFOOD! Thanks!

    • Thanks Trisha 🙂 If you love water sports and seafood then Lagos is definitely the place to get your hands dirty in.

  • Kevin Wagar

    Great video and narration! Portugal is incredible and while we didn’t get to Lagos when I was there, it’s definitely a spot to check out when I go back!

    • Thanks 🙂 I know you travel with your family and Lagos has a little bit of everything for all ages. You would definitely have a good time.
