Tours in Lagos
Porto de Mõs
Our favourite walking tour takes you on a scenic stroll along the
cliffs that surround Praia (beach) Porto de Mõs.
brisk walk culminates down the hill at Praia Porto do Mos. From
the cliffs at Porto do Mos, you will enjoy a great view of the Lagos
coast. Villa Esmeralda and it's prized cliff-side setting embellish
the shoreline which slopes down to a great little beach-side restaurant
"Campimar", at the entrance of Porto do Mos. Campimar's
rustic wood ambiance is one of our favorite beach settings and a
great place on both a sunny
or rainy day with it's sheltered and outdoor seating. One stormy
evening, we sat inside and watched the fierce waves thundering up
close to our table. We felt rather comforted as we enjoyed our flavourful
glasses of vintage port.
cliffs at Porto do Mos are a great place to extend your walk in
a natural surrounding, where many picturesque surprises await
you. Notice the low lying multitude of vibrant flora along your
path. This floral array varies with each season. You will need to
be extremely cautious to avoid coming too close to the quickly eroding
coastline. Be smart and enjoy this adventure!
along the cliffs, I have my favourite little low lying flat rock.
This is a sacred spot where I can sit for endless amounts of time,
in the peace and serenity of the Lagos coastline with only the sounds
of the waves crashing and the occasional bird. This highlight offers
an opportunity to reflect on my day, my
holiday, or my life in general. If the tide is out, you can watch
the fisherman combing the rocks in search of something (not sure
exactly what)! These cliffs provide a natural path that can take
you all the way to Praia da Luz, if you are really in for a long
I must admit, we did not make it up for our early morning
walk on one rainy day, but the weather cleared up and we took this
same route at sunset. What a surprise it was to come across this
spectacular view from the cliffs looking towards Praia da Luz. Simply
The Route to Luz: If you do feel extremely energetic, plan for a full 2 hour hike to get to Luz "one way". You can enjoy lunch in Luz and then take a cab back to Lagos, unless of course you are up for yet another 2 hour hike.
