The most popular region is the Algarve; with its long beaches and warm waters.

Explore on Portugal holidays
With the Algarve you certainly get the most for your money. It’s a firm favourite because you are always sure to find something to suit. Great food, great wine, great beach resorts and great nightlife all mean that whatever age or budget it’s a great start to explore Portugal.
For couples the most exciting places to visit are the more lively resorts of Albufeira and the Capital, Lisbon. Albufeira combines family-friendly beaches with the benefits of an exciting bar and restaurant scene. The capital city Lisbon offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle with great food, a wide variety of entertainment and all the history and culture you could ask for.
The Islands of Madeira and Porto Santo are ideal for family getaways or those looking for a more relaxed holiday. Less busy and with more open spaces, these two destinations are ideal for exploring at a slower pace. The beaches here are also idyllic spots for lying back and soaking up the sun.
To get a feel for more traditional but still lively Portuguese culture head north to the city of Porto. Renowned for excellent café culture and shopping, it’s somewhere where you can mix a spot of people watching with a historical tour, or a night wining and dining in top restaurants that offer the best from a truly mouth-watering choice of local cuisine. It’s also home to a few festivals which make it great if you’re travelling as a family with older children or a couple or small group seeking some excitement.
