Portugal borders Spain to the east and has two different coasts. The Atlantic coast has unspoiled beaches, and the magnificent cliff-top scenery of the Algarve coast. Portugal also has lush vineyards, olive groves and medieval villages inland. Whether you’re hitting the golf course, visiting the eccentric town of Lisbon or the Port making region, Douro Valley, Portugal has plenty to offer.
Portugal is blessed with over 3000 hours of sunshine a year and here, your spot in the sun can be on the unspoiled Atlantic coast, in the Algarve, the countryside inland, on a golf course or out at sea on a yacht. Here you have a choice of two coastlines: the rugged Atlantic coast running from North to South, dotted with unspoiled sandy beaches; and the balmy Algarve, home to some of the world’s most prestigious golf resorts, set amid breathtaking cliff-top scenery and a warm southern breeze. Driving inland, Portugal's eclectic countryside is revealed in lush vineyards and sprawling olive groves, with small medieval villages that time forgot dotted throughout. The historic North is rich in culture, expounding strong maritime, ecclesiastical and literary traditions. The food across Portugal is wonderful, with the Algarve in the south being particularly famous for its fresh fish and seafood.
