Overview

With its welcoming vibe and stunning landscape, holidays in Portugal are guaranteed to enchant. Portugal is famous for spectacular golden beaches and stylish cities, with a pleasant climate all-year round. If you want to beat the crowds and book a winter sun holiday, temperatures average at 23°C in October, a popular time for a late getaway.

 

The Algarve, a famous stretch of coastline renowned for its breathtaking cliffs, vast golden beaches and secluded sandy coves is among the most revered regions in Europe. The coastline stretches across a selection of Portugal holiday destinations from Faro to Sagres, with wide expanses of powder-soft sand, and quaint horseshoe coves offering sublime snorkelling and diving opportunities. 

 

For short getaways, Porto and Lisbon city breaks are packed full of amazing sights, fine dining and fantastic shopping. Explore the Duoro River in Porto, hit the beach and go port tasting in one of the hundreds of port caves in the city, or check out the colourful capital of Lisbon and its cosmopolitan neighbourhoods lined with fabulous restaurants. 

 

Whether you're travelling with friends, family and kids or going it alone, holidays in Portugal are packed full of fun and sun!

Places to go and things to do in Portugal

Amazing Algarve

Amazing Algarve

There is a variety of activities to choose from for people of different ages and abilities, making Algarve holidays suitable for all.

Algarve is one of the best golfing destinations in the world. There are a staggering 42 golf courses at 35 different clubs to choose from.

Algarve boasts a huge selection of restaurants and bars. Taking its location, most offer a large selection of fresh fish dishes. Restaurante The Cockerel, Located in Albufeira, is one of the longest running English restaurants. It’s a family run place serving all the UK favourites. NoSoloÁgua Portimão is a fabulous beach bar with a pool and pool bead in the town of Portimão.

The Algarve is largely known for its stunning coastline and many visitors come here for its breath-taking beaches. No matter where you stay you’ll be within reach of some of the best stretches of sand in Europe.

Lively Lisbon

Lisbon, the vibrant capital city of Portugal is a captivating holiday destination steeped in history, culture, and charm.

Known for its expansive hilltop vistas, iconic pastel-coloured buildings, and the enchanting sounds of Fado echoing through quaint, cobblestone streets, Lisbon promises an unforgettable travel experience.

Soak up the city's sights in the beautifully crafted Santa Justa Lift. This great example of Victorian engineering has neo-gothic arches and wooden carriages inside whisking tourists to the top. You can get some of the best views of the city from the top. Once you've experienced a bird's eye view, head down to ground level and explore the Baixa district's magnificent plazas, street side cafes and bars, and more grand architecture.

Whether you're looking for family friendly bars or a wild weekend on the town, Lisbon's nightlife never disappoints. Begin the night in the Bairro Alto district at one of the lively bars, before heading to one of various nightclubs in the area where you can dance until dawn.

Crowned as the city's oldest district, Alfama is a picturesque neighbourhood with narrow streets, winding steps and crowded cobbled terraces. Don't miss the Castelo de São Jorge sitting atop the sloping hill, make your way to the Panteão Nacional and Sao Vicente de Fora area on Tuesdays and Saturdays to check out the flea markets, and marvel at the Casa dos Bicos (House of Spikes). Nearby Alfama, you will find your pick of restaurants and bars.

 Algarve’s Beaches

The Algarve is largely known for its stunning coastline and many visitors come here for its breath-taking beaches. Here are some of them:

Praia dos Três Irmãos literally means beach of the three brothers. It’s a secluded beach with towering rock formations and many hidden caves that can be explored. 

Praia de Dona Ana is one of the most picturesque beaches in the area and it can be reached on foot from Lagos city centre in about half an hour. 

Praia do Camilo is within walking distance from Praia de Dona Ana. This beach is divided into two separate areas connected by a tunnel carved inside the rock.

Praia da Falesia is one of the longest beaches in Algarve. It’s perfect for water sports with plenty of excellent facilities as well as places to eat and drink.

Like most beaches in Algarve, Praia da Marinha beach can only be accessed by a steep wooden staircase and the views from the top of the cliffs are remarkable. 

 City Delights 

Away from the beaches of the Algarve are some sensational cities that should be on every bucket list this year.

In Porto, spend a day on the Douro River and see the vineyards where the famous port is made and stop for a spot of wine tasting en route. Daytripper’s can be picked up from their Porto hotel and taken on a guided tour across the pretty Douro valley, including its three main towns, Lamego, Régua and Pinhão - where you'll have the opportunity to explore the towns, museums and port caves. Keep your cameras at the ready as the tour coasts past stunning rocky slopes and valleys.

Funchal, the 500-year-old capital of Madeira, is surrounded by verdant mountains and makes for an adventurous afternoon, especially if you take the town cable car which runs high above the town. The architecture is impressive and a visit to the colourful market in the old town is a must.

Lisbon’s coastline offers a variety of gorgeous sandy beaches, which are easily accessible by public transport and are just a short drive away. If you fancy a family friendly day out, pick Praia de Carcavelos or Praia Sao Pedro, both of which fall on the Lisbon-Cascais rail route.
