The Essential

Although very touristy, Lagos has preserved a lot of charm and character, thanks to its fort, city walls and old district. The town was the capital of the Algarve between 1576 and 1756 and is now a popular seaside resort with a lively nightlife scene. If you want to take a dip, you have the choice of either the long sandy beach lined by dunes, to the east, and the crystalline-watered creeks flanked by remarkable rock formations to the west, towards Ponta da Piedade.
