Hidden along the cobbled lanes of the historical town of Lagos is a range of accommodation for all surfers. From Lagos, you can head off-road (and on-road) to surf some of south Portugals best surf breaks. The beaches around Lagos are some of the most beautiful in the Algarve region, like Praia de Dona Ana, which can be reached after a 25 minutes walk from the centre of the town, Praia do Camilo, a little further on, and Meia Praia, whose sands stretch for 4 km (2.5 miles) east of Lagos.
