Sun, sea and sand

Golden sands meet aquamarine seas, backed by ochre-coloured jagged cliffs. A Praia do Vau holiday is perfect for snorkelling and exploring rock pools, and it’s dotted with tiny coves too. If you’re taking the youngsters along, there’s plenty for families, with beachfront restaurants, loungers, and gentle swells.

Spend a day in Lagos

Set off on a trip to Lagos for the day and you won’t be disappointed. It’s about 45 minutes from Praia do Vau by car, so make a list of must-visit attractions, and tick off the churches and museums as you go.
