With an extensive coastline, great weather and a location next to Spain , Portugal holidays have increased in popularity over the years. Holidays to Portugal offer cultural sightseeing and high quality cuisine, but importantly for many holidaymakers, they also offer a large number of beach resorts especially in the Algarve which draws thousands of visitors every year. The great weather, particularly in the south of the country is another big draw with hot summers and mild winters providing the opportunity to enjoy a holiday in Portugal at any time of the year.
From Porto in the north down through the capital Lisbon to the Algarve in the south there is a Portugal holiday for everyone. Algarve holidays are by far the most popular choice with resorts including Albufeira, Alvor, Praia Da Rocha and Vilamoura enjoyed by holidaymakers throughout the year. The Algarve is the place to go for family beach holidays to Portugal with golden sandy beaches and plenty of holiday activities to enjoy in and around the resorts. Aquariums, adventure parks, water parks and a host of beaches await holidaymakers to this area of Portugal which also offers fantastic walks and beautiful places to visit. Lisbon , the cosmopolitan capital, is further up the coast but has plenty of great beaches whilst offering numerous museums and other cultural sites for a city and beach holiday rolled into one. Further North is the unspoilt but less holiday focused area of the country which is for travellers looking for a more authentic taste of Portuguese life. Finally there is the holiday island of Madeira which is situated some 600 miles off the Portuguese coast and offers much to see and do from whale & dolphin watching to scuba diving and relaxing in the sun.
