What day trips can I do from Lagos?

The ancient fortified town of Silves is only 30 minutes away and is small enough to see all its main sights in a day. Wander through the cobbled streets to discover the historic city gates in the main square up to the imposing red brick castle that dominates the skyline. Make sure that you visit the coastal resorts of Praia de Rocha and Portimao. Praia de Rocha is a tourist hub with a large beach and all the entertainment you could need in this well-developed resort. Just along the coastline is the town of Portimao,said to be one of the best places to shop in the Algarve. Explore the shopping precincts and the charming plazas then finish the day with a drink by the harbour as the sun sets.
