From water sports on the coast to exploring the unbelievably beautiful interior, Portugal’s attractions are as diverse as the landscape itself. Families may look no further than the lively resorts found throughout the Algarve, whereas culture loving couples may be fascinated by the history which waits in lovely Lisbon. Whatever your interests, Portugal delivers first class entertainment.


Sandy Beaches


  • Yep, you have guessed it – head to the Algarve for the best beaches in Portugal, with the resorts of Albufeira, Vilamoura and Praia de Rocha popular with families who want plenty of facilities to help keep everyone entertained alongside the sandy beaches and hot Portuguese sun


  • With over 500 miles of coastline, you will not have any trouble finding a secluded spot somewhere. Many areas are popular with surfers thanks to the big waves and rugged coastline in places, which will be music to the ears of water sports fanatics


  • Somewhat surprising to some, the capital Lisbon also has access to many beaches. What could be better than a city break which can also double up as a beach holiday?

Kids Fun


  • For kids, Portugal is like a treasure trove, full of interest and wonder. The busy Algarve resorts have plenty of child-friendly attractions and day excursion opportunities available which will help keep everyone busy and entertained.


  • The Zoomarine in Albufeira has been a favourite for a number of years, with live shows featuring giants of the seas, including sea lions and dolphins


  • Sticking with the water theme, a day at Aqualand Water Park near Lagos is another must-do if you want to tire the kids out so you can have a more peaceful evening!


Food and Drink


  • Seafood lovers rejoice – Portugal can serve up some of the best dishes in Europe, with cites such as Lisbon and Porto, as well as coastal towns such as Alvor, offering up seafood dishes that will make your taste buds jump for joy.


  • Looking for a bit of night time action? There are plenty of options open to you. Lisbon as the capital city has the most options, with entertainment coming in all shapes and sizes. It is just a case of finding a bar or club with suits your taste and dancing the night away if you so wish


  • Albufeira has some top night spots which cater for younger crowds, with the summer seeing some areas turn into party hotspots which seem to be more Spanish party island than Portuguese mainland. 

Hints & Tips

  • Whilst the coastline and Algarve region draws the most tourists, venture into the interior and you will be rewarded with stunning scenery, quaint, picturesque villages and national parks which will simply blow you away


  • Fishing is a big part of coastal life in Portugal, so join in the fun and charter your own boat for a fishing trip of a lifetime. Fishing for magnificent sea beasts like swordfish, marlin, tuna and rays is a one in a lifetime opportunity and certainly one which will not be regretted
