Enjoy sun-dappled coastlines and welcoming towns
A warm climate, beautiful coastline and fascinating historical sites combine to make Portugal a wonderful destination for a holiday. Whether you choose to explore the southernmost region, Algarve, or venture further to the island of Madeira, you'll be met with incredible natural beauty, friendly locals and divine cuisine.
Of course, there are many gorgeous areas where you can simply sunbathe, relax, and dine - and you should certainly take advantage of the warm weather. But the destinations we've chosen also offer fantastic outdoor recreation. In Algarve, you can enjoy thrilling water sports and fabulous bird watching in the barrier islands, whilst in Madeira you'll encounter scenic walks, unforgettable whale watching and botanical gardens to explore. Afterwards, spend the evening sampling the decadent, crisp wines Portugal is so well known for.
Why visit Portugal?
- Portugese cuisine is divine, focusing on sensational seafood and using homegrown ingredients to make all the flavours pop. In Algarve, whet your appetite with Conquilhas à Algarvia - succulent clams cooked with Portugese sausage and a delicious creamy sauce, or stop by a local restaurant for Algarve's answer to tapas: petiscos de taberna. Whilst visiting Madeira, be sure to try black scabbard, a deep sea fish found only in a few places around the world, and end any meal with a sickly sweet Madeiran wine.
- Portugal's landscape, in Algarve and Madeira especially, is sensational. Madeira is shrouded in vibrant flora that looks as if it belongs in Hawaii, including hot pink bougainvillea, shady banana leaf plants and Birds of Paradise, whilst Algarve offers picturesque beaches with rugged cliff backdrops - venture further and you'll find little coves created by jaw-dropping structures.
