Lagos and Meia Praia / May 2016

Our Epic trip 2016 when we visited 4 countries on 2 continents started in South Portugal, in the West of Algarve. I already posted about Portimao and Sagres. Today Lagos ­čÖé

Lagos population was 31,049 in 2011. It is one of the most visited cities on Algarve, due to rocks, cliffs (Ponta da Piedade), great beaches and vibrant summer nightlife. It is also historic centre of the Portuguese Age of Discovery home of Henry the Navigator, historical shipyard and, at one time, centre of the European slave trade.

Meia Praia:

Is the most popular tourist beach. Well-known for soft, white sand and calm ocean. It is also one of the largest open bays in Europe ! ! !
