Marina de Lagos
Lagos's award-winning marina, built in 1994, lies in the Bay of Lagos close to the historic heart of the town. It makes a pleasant destination for a stroll along the palm-fringed waterfront which has a promenade with street vendors selling souvenirs on one side and a good choice of bars, eateries and shops on the other.
There's lots going on here, even outside the peak holiday season. As well as browsing for souvenirs, it can be fun watching the boats coming in and out through the opening bridge and there are tour boats here offering trips along the spectacular coastline.
It can be quite difficult to park cars in the small marina car park, but the marina can easily be accessed via a footbridge from the historic centre, bus station and town car parks. The Meia Praia Beach is a short walk south of the marina.
The marina itself has 462 pontoon berths for yachts up to 30 metres. The channel is dredged to a depth of 3 metres. It is equipped with water and electricity supplies. Access to the Marina is via a well protected harbour entrance.
