Marina de Lagos

  • Lagos, at the west of the Algarve has long been a seafaring town, since the Portuguese sailors set out from there to discover new lands across the globe. Nowadays, Lagos attracts leisure sailors to one of the best sailing spots in Europe, offering steady offshore winds, easy seas, excellent support facilities, giving a warm welcome to those arriving and also a superb time on shore.

  • Marina de Lagos about a 50 minute drive from Faro airport has a unique location, sitting right in the town centre, protected from the sea, allowing for a hassle free cruising lifestyle, where everything can be reached on foot or using the public transportation or car rental at the marina’s doorstep – literally! These attributes have put the marina on the list of the best places to stay aboard and proof of it is that it hosts an active community of boaters who make the most of their time in Lagos through a wide range of group activities, water and land based.

  • For those crossing the Atlantic Ocean, Lagos is a logical stop for either the start or the end of the journey.
