Lagos is a city and municipality at the mouth of the Bensafrim River on the western part of Portugal’s south coast facing the Atlantic Ocean. It sits between metropolitan Portimão to the east and the natural parks of Sagres and Aljezur to the west.
This proud city with a rich maritime history more than 2000 years old has managed to retain its charm with cobbled streets, chic shops, terraces, and a cosmopolitan feel. When choosing where to buy in Lagos, you will be spoilt for choice – tranquil locations, secluded hideaways, and the lively centre.
Lagos is blessed with four amazing beaches within walking distance of the historic centre of Lagos (Praia Dona Ana, Praia da Batata, Meia Praia, and Praia do Camilo). Dona Ana beach was voted “The best beach in Portugal” by TripAdvisor.
The Algarve is generally more expensive than more rural areas of Portugal. However, from an investment perspective, Lagos is a good investment that offers good capital growth and good rental potential.
Lagos provides a great choice, from affordable houses to luxury villas. The more populated areas of Lagos are by the coast. Go further inland, and you will discover the peace and quiet of the region.
