Portugal has some of the best beaches in Europe. The beaches are so stunningly gorgeous that you will feel like you are in a dream when you see them. Beach caves connect some of the beaches, while towering cliffs surround you in a hug from the Universe. The sand is the perfect softness and the aquamarine waters will leave you feeling soothed in a way that not even spa treatments could do. In fact, I consider the beaches of Lagos to be some of the best beaches in the world.

Lagos has some of the most jaw-dropping views that you’ve ever seen. Jagged cliffs tower over the crashing waves and there’s no better way to see them than to hike them. I recommend hiking with the West Coast Adventure Company if you want to see the hidden spots of Lagos and beyond.

4. Scrumptious Food

Lagos also had a spectacular choice of food. I soon got tired of the mainly cod-based Portuguese diet, and enjoyed all the international food that was available. I ate delicious Mexican, Indian, and incredible seafood. Whatever you do, don’t leave Lagos without trying the Porto gelato from Crema di Gelato. It was some of the best gelato I’ve ever had in my life! For tips on what to eat in the Algarve, read this article.
