Portugal holidays

Charm, cuisine, culture – Portugal’s got it by the bucketload. The Algarve's just one great example, with excellent golf, Blue Flag shores and a ton of family-friendly attractions too. For Portugal with an island twist, look to Madeira. Its lush botanical gardens and epic hiking trails make it a magnet for outdoorsy types. Whichever patch of the country you plump for, all parts take pride in their love for good food, good wine and good times. Cinnamon-sprinkled custard tarts, grilled sardines, crisp wine and velvety port are all national treasures, so sampling them is a rite of passage for any holiday to Portugal.

All about the beaches

If you’re looking for huge, golden-sand beaches and first-class sporting facilities, head to the Algarve. For a quieter pace of life, Madeira is the place to be.

Great for golfers

Portugal is one of Europe’s most popular golfing destinations, with Algarve golf holidays drawing crowds year round, being home to more than 40 greens, with a handful ranked among the best in the world. And thanks to the stunning weather, you can enjoy a game year-round, with truly stellar views.

Sights, sights, sights 

Want something more than fly and flop? Away from the fairways and oceanfronts, Portugal holidays offer plenty to do. The Algarve’s waterparks, pretty old towns and surfing spots are perfect for families. Sleepy Madeira, meanwhile, is all about the great outdoors.
