The Algarve region has a lot to offer. If you don't know what activities you can enjoy during your holidays in the city of Lagos, we will give you a hand.

As you all know, the Algarve provides many beach-related activities, but there is much more to it than sand and sea. Besides, there are several ways to get to know Lagos and the whole region. Have you ever thought of seeing the city from another perspective? Perhaps by the sea?

Coastal boat tour

This is undoubtedly one of the activities that cannot be missing from your list. Besides the different perspective you have of the Lagos, you can also explore the various caves and meet many hidden beaches along the coast. There are several trips you can choose, and all provide a pleasant day to the taste of the sea breeze.

Our partners Bom Dia Boat Trips, do trips in the Lagos bay (4.30h duration), in the most beautiful grottos (1.30h or 2.00h duration) or finally, the observation of the friendliest dolphins of our coast (1.30h duration).

Kayak Tours

Join family or friends and get closer to nature like never before. Explore the sea and the caves of Lagos coastline, know all its history in a kayak tour. Pass through natural bridges, watch the beauty of Ponta da Piedade in an environmentally friendly vehicle and finally, combine the whole experience with physical exercise.
Kayak Tours instructors will guide you along a fascinating kayak trip, with stops at the various beaches of Lagos, some of which are only accessible through the sea.
These tours are seasonal (from March to October) and always depend on good sailing conditions.

Jeep Tour

Can you imagine exploring the virgin Costa Vicentina by jeep? The coast area is protected, and all its beauty is in nature in contrast to the sea. Or do you want to enjoy the sunset in the mountains? After the winding trail through the Monchique mountains, pass the fruit trees typical of the region and at the end relax in the comfortable Land Rover watching the magnificent sunset. Do you run away from the touristic centres from time to time to see the authenticity of the country you are visiting? Finish the day in a typical wine cellar or meet old pottery from Porches.

These and other adventures can be experienced aboard the jeeps of our Sagres Discovery partners. Always make your reservation in advance at the reception.

Hovercraft Experience

The Hovercraft is an all-terrain vehicle capable of providing you moments of pure adrenaline. It moves not only by land but also by water and air. For beginners, driving this amphibious car will not be easy, but it will always have the support of trained instructors.
In 20 minutes by car from Belmar Spa & Beach Resort will be the stage for all the adventure. It is in Mexilhoeira Grande, a small parish near the Ria de Alvor, that you will find the best Hovercraft experience of your holidays.

Benagil Caves

Benagil is a small fishing village on the southern coast of the Algarve, although it has its charm, it is famous for the Benagil cave. The cave with a window open to the sky, bathed in turquoise waters is one of the many postcards in the Algarve. Spend a full day at Ophelia catamaran, departing in the city of Portimão, passing through the rock formations of Algar Seco and then Benagil. Through smaller boats, get to know the world-famous cave and take the opportunity to practice your photographer skills. Finally, disembark on a secluded beach for delicious Algarve delicacies.

These tours take place every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at the Vasco Da Gama pier, in Portimão.

Carvoeiro “Doll”

In the Algar Seco in Carvoeiro, you can find the famous "doll", a series of rock formations, sculpted over the centuries by the wind and forming natural pools. The rock formations have the appearance of windows and balconies and are accessible by land. The rock has the nickname of "doll" because it appears to have the shape of one when seen from the sea. Enter into the cave and feel like you are on a terrace with the sea at your feet.
These caves can be visited by boat or, as mentioned above, by land, through a maze of stairs with 134 steps, built mainly by nature.
Choose to visit at sunrise or sunset, 35 minutes away from Belmar Resort to Algar Seco.

Enjoy all the activities that the Algarve has to offer. Make your holiday a unique moment full of memories.
