OK, so while we can't hide our enthusiasm over the
town of Lagos, we must admit that the number and variety of day-trips
available are truly endless. There is something to suit your every
interest. Our favourite excursions will give you a sampling of the
sights across the regions of the Algarve and of Lisboa. From your Lagos home-base,
each of these short expeditions can be comfortably completed within
a day, and will heighten your love for the Algarve and for Portugal.
Major Tip: If you choose
to take the EN125 (2-lane) highway, avoid Lagoa during morning and
afternoon rush hour. Traffic moving through Lagoa can get so backed
up. This may add 30-60 minutes to any trip where you really must
go through Lagoa. If you take the A22 highway (4-lane), you bypass
Lagoa and avoid the bottleneck.
