Portugal has a breathtaking beauty – from the traditional, rugged north to the silky soft beaches in the south. Portugal is around the size of Scotland with twice the population and is tremendously varied both geographically and in its ways of life and traditions.
Stretching all along the coast around Lisbon and on the well-developed Algarve coast in the south, there are highly sophisticated resorts. The buzzing capital of Lisbon has enough going on to please most city shoppers.
Portugal has variety – whether you are seeking scenic golf courses for a round of nine holes or wish to discover the real Portugal, you can unwind by the sea, lunch under shaded pergolas in a village bar, hike through herb-scented hills or mix with the cosmopolitan crowd in a lively town.
On Portugal’s dramatic Lisbon coastline you can combine crumbling historic palaces, sandy beaches and a mass of culture. Make for beautiful coves with a picnic and discover inviting crystal blue waters. Or simply spend your days unwinding, lazily soaking up the sun letting the sand sift between your toes as you listen to the soft surf wash the shores.
Sun drenched beaches are tucked behind every headland – sandy, clean and punctuated with astonishing rock formations. Expertly designed golf courses combine challenges galore and superb views.
Portugal has sleepy towns and villages where holiday visitors melt into local life, resorts brimming with good restaurants and good cheer and great shopping at local markets and modern malls.
Research to make sure you choose the right resort. For instance Albufeira with seven beaches and plenty of energy, makes a great choice for those looking for sun by day and a party at night but families hoping for a good night’s sleep may prefer quiet Carvoeiro or the tempting sands at Praia Da Rocha. If luxury is what you are seeking, you might choose the style and polish of Vilamoura.
