    The tour was very well organised from start to finish. From booking to arriving very easy.
    We were a group of 4 Adults and 2 x children.

    The crew were very funny and accomdating at all time. This is a must do trip when you are in Lagos.

    The wind was very strong but that didn't stop us from having great fun.
    We all had life jackets of a good quality that fitted all sizes.
    A positive point was that we didn't get towed out to sea, we were on board a old fishing ship, which was much better I think than being towed out to sea!

    The skipper and crew were top.

    We had a lovely cooling drink after the fun and motored back home with the sun in our faces, with lots of beautiful memories and cameras full of photos to remind us of this tour.
    It was a high light.

    We walked from the old town which took around 20 minutes. The beach is beautiful and calm in the morning. Highly recommend arriving by 9:00am for a good spot so you can set up before the crowd.

    Quite a small beach, which is reached by a lot of steps, so not suitable for people with mobility problems. Also it is advisable to check the tide times as the water comes in and covers most of the beach at high tide, so there is very little space left to sit on the sand. There is a small beach bar which stocks limited drinks which are quite expensive. However it is a lovely place to swim with clear water. Depending on wind conditions you may get a lot of seaweed drifting in.

    Walked the beach on a couple of occasions during the recent break - great way of catching some sun then indulge yourselves at one of the wooden restaurants just on the beach - fantastic!

    We walked here from Lagos town for a yoga class. We arrived a little early and got to enjoy an hour on the beach. We went for a swim in the waves which was really fun, although there was quite a lot of seaweed which isn’t my favourite. Busy beach but not too crowded. Toilet block and beach bar was really handy. Lots of parking too. Beautiful spot to watch the sun go down.

    A very pretty little zoo with a good selection of birds from budgies and parrots to huge, rather frightening monsters that looked a bit prehistoric. Meercats, penguins, monkeys, snakes, flamingos, turtles..... No big game - no elephants or lions - but well worth a gentle stroll for half a day. Everything looked well-cared for and clean. A pleasant snack bar. Beside it is O Cangalho, a charming, very Portuguese restaurant with a good menu and great service.

    Lovely walk from Porto De Mos to lighthouse along the interesting coastline. Great cliffs, rock formations and caves.

    Enjoyed our visit here. Park the car just outside the city wall in a parking garage which is machine operated (gives change). Reasonable rates. Lots to do and walk around. Recommend stroller for small kids.

    Although we didn’t actually get right down to the dam the views to it from the top road were stunning. The area all around here is lovely and well worth a car tour. We went from Alvor up into the hills to the dam, then down west to the little coastal road, passing a great wetland area with good path down the side, which we walked in our eternal search again for the elusive purple gallinule!

    Not very easy to access. It's not a very difficult hike, but the path is not very safe. Steps are crumbling and there is a very narrow part that you have to hold on to wooden sticks. If you can go pass that, the beach is beautiful, very secluded, clean and beautiful water.

    We were staying in Alvor about 20 minutes by taxi (€16 each way). The vineyard has gone full organic for grapes and bottling and the own is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable host. Good to hear and learn about local grape varieties and sample 3 of his bottlings. I'm usually a red wine man but the white here was made some on and gave the wine a deeper complexity and colour. Drinks in the front of his house enjoying the weather, his dogs and most of all the wine with tapas. A really nice afternoon. But book ahead as they are busy.

    This is a great little place. Really well laid out, friendly staff, lots of different activities to do. My 6 and 3 year old loved it. Outside spaces were lovely and perfect on a rainy day where we could pop in and out. Really reasonably priced, under 6s are free. We spent a couple of hours there but could happily have spent longer.

    If you go to Lagos you have to visit this church, I think the most important in the city
    It is a typical Portuguese church, located in a wide and beautiful square, it is old but was partially restored after a fire
    It is worth noting the strange mural behind the altar, where a battle between orange and purple angels is depicted.
    It is not a grandiose church but it is worth it to see its tiles
    In the sacristy there is a collection of images from the 18th century, one of which highlights the image of the Menino Jesus Rei, dressed in period costumes.
    Just south of the church there is a restored stretch of the Lagos city walls, it is worth following the walk through the city from there

    Thought provoking museum . As far as keeping an open historical factual story with out any deep details . The exhibits are good. The building although stark white still pocesses a feeling or presence from the past. Would have thought there may have been more detail about the actual building and how people were enslaved. Would highly recommend this museum. The town itself is stunning and the Museum is a must see however very sad its content is
