Lagos

Breezy and cool in every sense of the word, Lagos has an infectious energy and a laid-back feel. However, this bustling fishing port also has a venerable history, and evocative buildings—including the Slave Market, Castelo dos Governadores, Forte Ponta da Bandeira, and Igreja de Santo António—are ocular proof. The town’s cobblestone streets have a broad assortment of good restaurants and nighttime hangouts; while pristine beaches with big waves offer outdoor activities nearby.
