Portugal

Portugal holidays

Charm, cuisine, culture – Portugal’s got it by the bucketload. Lisbon's just one great example, spectacularly set among hilly cobbled streets. And the coast that gives way from the colourful capital is the stuff of dreams. Quaint seaside towns and golden beaches are just the start of its best bits. Further south, the Algarve’s a similar picture, 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. Further north, Lisbon Coast’s sweeping bays are just as pretty and close to lively nightlife. 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. Lisbon Coast’s bursting with historic treasures – just take a look at fairytale-like Sintra  – and the Algarve’s waterparks, pretty old towns and surfing spots are perfect for families. Sleepy Madeira, meanwhile, is all about the great outdoors.
