A trip to Lagos, in Southern Portugal, offers you the opportunity to explore incredible beaches and breathtaking grottos. Plan on spending the day soaking up the sunshine, whether you choose to relax on the beach, take a boat tour, or simply wander around the cultural center of the town. Here are 5 things to do in Lagos Portugal:
1) Take in the stunning views from Ponta da Piedade Lighthouse. It’s situated on spectacular cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, making it an ideal spot to watch the sun go down over the water.
2) Go on a dolphin and whale watching cruise. There are several companies that offer fun, relaxing boat cruises where you can see these incredible creatures in their natural habitat.
3) Go kayaking through the grottos. A guided kayaking tour will give you greater insight into the history of Lagos, as well as allow you to get out on the water for an adventurous and memorable excursion through the area’s many charming grottos.
4) Relax on Camilo Beach is definately one of the things to do in Lagos Portugal. It’s an ideal sandy spot to take a nap after exploring the natural rock formations found on this secluded beach.
5) Visit the Church of St. Anthony. Built in 1707, this beautiful church also includes a small museum filled with interesting artifacts. It is definitely a must-see sight in the town of Lagos.
