Portugal is a beautiful European destination with plenty to see and do. The Algarve is the country’s most popular area, not just for its beaches but also for its golf courses. Blessed with an almost tropical climate, this southern-most province forms the South-West corner of Europe. It has more than 100 miles of dramatic coastline washed by the Atlantic Ocean, creating a record number of Blue Flag beaches.
Things to do in Portugal
Probably the most popular attraction on the Algarve is the variety of golf courses with many of our holiday apartments in Portugal being located just minutes away from a local course. Kids are sure to love a trip on a sail boat out to see the dolphins or a visit to Aqualand. For those thrill seekers, why not try blokarting – a unique twist on the old fashioned go-kart! Horse riding, hobie kayaks and a host of water sports make the Algarve a fun place to be for everyone.
Beaches in Portugal
With around 600 miles of coast, much of which is sandy beach, Portugal is a beach-goer’s paradise. Portugal’s beaches vary widely in both appearance and the range of activities they offer. From the weird and wonderful rock formations of the Algarve’s coves to the exposed, windswept expanse of Guincho near Cascais, all of these beaches are all blessed with an unquestionable, natural beauty, making our holiday apartments the perfect match.
