Golf holidays in Lagos & Penina.

Golf holidays in Lagos - Western Algarve

Lagos is the ideal Portuguese golf holiday destination for golfers who like to feel immersed in the local culture and a feel of the real Portugal on their golf break.  Lagos is a traditional Portuguese town that was in existence long before the arrival of golf holidays in this part of the Algarve.  The town is a succession of narrow black and white cobbled streets, albeit nowadays lined with restaurants and bars aiming to catch the holidaymaker's Euro, but somehow it all seems a lot more genuine.  Indeed many Portuguese choose to holiday here - so they must be doing something right!

Lagos - the old town

Restaurants and cafes are everywhere through the old town and, as you might imagine on the Algarve coastline, fish and seafood is a speciality.  Browsing around you will find some great value on offer, thanks in part to the fierce competition for business.

The town exists primarily due to its huge sandy beach.  Above the waves a seafront of high rise hotels and apartments looms, inhabited by those on a mission to spend as much time in the sun as possible during their stay.

There a few good restaurants tucked away in the back streets and it is the closest town to Penina.

Penina Golf Resort

Penina is a a very British style of resort with a parkland course and a big hotel that is furnished in an English country club style.  For many holiday golfers it makes the perfect home away from home; needless to say a much warmer home during the Winter months!

Those on a golf break at Penina are however in a prime position to access many of the other courses around that are in a more Portuguese style.  So a golf holiday at Penina is a very good way of combining the best of both golfing worlds on your Algarve golf holiday.

Getting to Lagos & Penina

Getting to your golf holiday at Penina or in Lagos could hardly be any easier with so many flights to Faro - the gateway to the Algarve.  From Faro airport it is only an hour's drive west to Penina or Lagos on good motorways.  We can arrange flights for you if you wish or are equally happy to let you book these yourselves if you prefer?

We can arrange a hire-car for the duration of your holiday, or we have a very reliable coach and minibus company that we use if you prefer to be chauffeured from golf course to golf course in and around Penina and Lagos.
