Portugal is a country with something for everyone. From historic cities such as Lisbon and Porto to the magnificent sandy beaches of the Algarve, everyone will find what they’re looking for.

Holidays in Portugal usually conjure up pictures of the beautiful beaches of the Algarve. With the highest amount of sunshine in Europe it is easy to see why the Algarve remains such a popular holiday destination. Centred on Lagos, good times are never far away and it’s fine array of restaurants, bars and local festas stand testament to this. The busy flea market fills the narrow streets on the centre, which also boasts a Cultural Centre hosting various exhibitions and events throughout the year. For those more interested in the maritime aspect of the area, boat trips, deep sea fishing and yacht hire are all available at the marina.

Golf is a popular activity throughout the Algarve with the Palmares, Boavista and Alta courses offering a round with views of the ocean and the challenging Penina Championship Course nearby which often hosts a Portuguese Open tournament. For the younger visitor there are various water parks offering exciting rides and a zoo that offers the opportunity to swim with dolphins.

Beyond the shores and beaches of Portugal lie the islands of Madeira and the Azores. Both are verdant jewels in the Atlantic Ocean with dramatic cliffs and landscapes. Madeira boasts a very active year round holiday season making investments on the island especially attractive.
