Between the resorts found in the Algarve or one of the islands lying off the coast of Morocco, Portugal holidays promise visitors laidback surroundings with dozens of beaches from which to enjoy the perfect sunshine setting.
The Algarve, Madeira and Porto Santo share a terrific Mediterranean climate inspiring landscapes that are rich in nature. The culture within each of these destinations show hints of other European influences but are still proudly Portuguese.
Tourists are welcomed to each resort with some fantastic villas and hotels to choose from while idyllic beaches are never too far away. Championship quality golf courses are almost as frequent a sight as the beaches in Portugal thanks to the consistently fantastic playing conditions.
There are resorts for chilling, resorts for partying and resorts for family fun on both mainland Portugal and on the islands. You're sure to find exactly what you need with holidays here.
Covering the entirety of Portugal's south coast, Algarve is filled with an array of resorts that cater for a range of purpose holidays. You're never more than a short walk to the beach in most resorts which is ideal for tourists wanting to make the most of this region's phenomenal climate.
Aside from the beaches you can slip and slide at two fantastic waterparks or interact with animals at Lagos Zoo or the Zoomarine.
Most resorts are perfect for relaxing but many know how to let loose with a spattering of lively nightlife found in certain areas.
