If you’re holidaying in the Algarve then Faro airport in the Eastern Algarve will be your flight destination. However, the whole of the Algarve Coast can be reached within an two hour drive ans its well worth exploring as far west as you can go.
Near the western end of the Alagrve is Sagres.
Sagres is great for spectacular scenery and walking.It is around a 2 hour drive from Faro, and has a slightly more rugged landscape. The beaches here can be dangerous due to the huge waves, which can be both exciting and dangerous for the unwary. Sagres Fort is set on the cliff tops above the sea and is a great place to view the fantastic landscape.
Lagos is famous for its spectacular rock formations, its castle and the historical old town. Around 8 miles further to the west of Lagos is Praia da Luz. Formerly a fishing village, Praia da Luz is now a popular family tourist destination, based around a series of good quality villa complexes.
