Lagos
Lagos – 1 day.

Lagos

Spend a day in Lagos, which is approximately an hour’s drive from Faro. Spend some time in the city centre – beautifully sculpted in traditional architecture – before heading off to long sandy beaches protected by the jutting cliffs. On the southern corner of the Bay of Lagos is Ponta da Piedade, a great place to admire the picturesque lighthouse. Or explore the fascinating grottos and rock formations. If you arrive early, venture to the harbour which is always full of fishing vessels and pleasure yachts coming and going.
