Lagoa is a small, quiet, and relatively non-touristy town that’s situated 10 minutes inland from more popular beach resort towns like Carvoeiro and Ferragudo. Although there are charming parts to the town, including the main square, its main selling point is its location rather than anything in the town itself.

It is just 10-15 minutes drive from some of the best beaches on the Algarve including Praia da Marina, Praia de Benagil, and Praia de Albandeira. It’s also just a 5-minute drive from Slide & Splash, one of the Algarve’s most popular water parks.

Lagoa is a quiet town with a few cafés and restaurants – enough to keep most people entertained for a week or so. It also has plenty of big supermarkets, which is ideal for those that are self-catering.

Although Lagoa does pick up a few tourists during the summer months, it’s definitely much less touristy than most of the towns nearby. If you’re looking for somewhere that has a high concentration of Portuguese residents as opposed to tourists, Lagoa is a good option to consider.
