The west of the Algarve is without doubt one of the most beautiful and authentic regions in all of Portugal.
With a thriving coastline, the western Algarve is the least urbanised region in Portugal, meaning it has a vibrant collection of nationally protected nature reserves and gorgeous beaches. The traditional fishing villages are effervescent with life and Portuguese culture, with the fresh seafood caught daily by local fishermen supplementing some of Portugal's finest seafood dining.
You can easily stroll across the shoreline and between villages by following one of the many footpaths.
For those travelling internationally, flying to Faro airport is the best option. Faro Airport lies just two and a half miles from Faro- the capital of the Algarve. If you're making your way to Lagos, you'll have to plan ahead for the 90km journey from Faro airport to Lagos.
While there's no public transport hub at Faro airport, Eva buses operate between the airport and Faro City, and from Faro City you can catch a bus or a train to Lagos. A bus takes approximately two hours and ten minutes to reach Lagos, and a train takes about one hour and fifty minutes.
You can make use of public transport or you could rent a car or jump in a cab to the Western Algarve which is under an hour.
The Algarve enjoys a warm climate which means that the weather remains mild and sunny all year round.
The region has an average of over 3,000 hours of sunny skies each year, making the Algarve the perfect destination no matter what month of the year it is.
Lagos – A historic and lively city, Lagos offers splendid beaches, a lovely historic centre and an abundance of sights and activities all around the city and its beaches.

Odeceixe - At the most northern point of the Algarve's West Coast is the town of Odeceixe.
