The choice of beaches within a half hours drive of Lagos is outstanding. This is your guide to heaven.
The Algarve is renown for its beaches with dramatic cliffs towering over many of them. In the heat of the summer, the Portuguese will arrive early at the beach, between 8am and 9:30am and stay until 12:30pm and then go home for lunch at 1pm Often the mother will stay home in the morning to prepare the three course lunch and do her chores. After eating the lunch, everyone will have a little rest, and then go out for an expresso. The whole family will come back to the beach at around 4pm and often stay until 7pm or even later. They would not consider eating dinner before 8pm at the earliest. In the summer dinner could be at 9pm or 10pm. As there are hundreds of beaches, try to discover some new ones to make your holiday all that much more special.
