Lagos, Portugal one of the top honeymoon destinations
Thank you for visiting GuruEscape Travel Site Blog.
Lagos was named by Harper Bazaar a great honeymoon destination. And there are plenty of reasons to justify this choice.
Spring and summer are the busiest times of the year in Lagos dominated by surfers, but Lagos is a destination for honeymoon 12 months out of the year.
Must see places in Lagos
Lagos Portugal is a magnificent place with a lot of treasures waiting to be discovered. Here are five places recommended by GuruEscape
1. Praia do Pinhao
When you come to Lagos, its no doubt chilling on white sandy beaches is at the top of your list. The main town beach, Praia da Batata is nice, however another 200 meters around the coast and you find a paradise spot. Praia do Pinhão is an untouched beach, surrounded by red cliffs, with clear waters and white sands. Its a little harder to find as you need to follow a small street off the main Avenida, hence its far less known and less crowded than the other beautiful beaches, Praia Dona Ana and Praia do Camilo.
When you arrive to Praia do Pinhao, you are greeted with a magnificent view from above down to the beach. And when you want to move on, Praia Dona Ana is just over the hill.
2. Ponta da Piedade
As Lagos´ number 1 rated tourist attraction, this is obviously something you can’t miss… and you can get there by various means of transport – foot, car, boat, kayak, so you won’t have to! Ponta da Piedade is a magical place with caves, rock formations and glowing waters. Its really a breath taking site. You can reach it by foot behind the Lagos Light House. But we recommend taking a Paddle boating tour, as the tour guide will point out the interesting rock formations and you can venture into caves and really experience it! Take a Tour of the Lagos Caves
3. The Fish and Farmers Markets
Although Lagos still maintains its quaint, traditional charm, as a tourist destination its harder to find the real Portuguese essence. When you go to the Lagos fish Market, or weekly farmers market, you get in touch with the real locals and the typical rural lifestyle. The markets are colorful and atmospheric, with friendly Portuguese farmers offering their goods and enjoying the social aspect of it all.
4. Igreja de Santo António
We know that when you come to Lagos, its probably more for a sun baking holiday than a cultural one. However this church, Igresia de Santo Antonio is really quite impressive! Take some time to pop inside and take a look. Its at the end of the main pedestrian street, attached to the Museu Muncipal and you will likely pass it many times unknowingly on your way to the town beach. So its quite a surprise when you discover what an ornate golden chamber lies inside.
5. The Westcoast
Heading west from Lagos, the coastline becomes even more natural and untouched. The landscape is beautiful and its really worth taking a day to adventure and see it. There are a lot of great ways to discover it, including with Nature Tours who will tell you about the nature and history of the area. Or, if you fancy surfing, the surf schools will take you to west coast beaches. Take a Walking Tour
