The mild climate, 3000 hours of sunshine a year and 850 km of splendid beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean make Portugal a perfect destination for all seasons, just a few hours drive from any European capital.
The gastronomy, the good wines and the friendliness of the Portuguese complete an offer of quality tourist services, whether for a weekend or for a longer holiday.
Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and a hub of a multifaceted region that appeals to different tastes and senses.
On the south bank of Lisbon, the Sesimbra coastline presents a unique diversity of landscapes, from which some of the most beautiful beaches of the country stand out, with its calm sea, where nautical and leisure activities coexist with the arts and traditions of fishing.
On the western coast, the territory is cut by the Lagoa de Albufeira, much sought after for windsurfing and kitesurfing.
A little further south is the Moinho de Baixo beach, next to Aldeia do Meco, characterized by its long sandy beaches.
Continuing along the coast one arrives at Rio de Prata, one of the first naturist beaches of the country, and soon after appears the beach of Bicas, place of choice for surf lovers.
Its exceptional geographical location gives it a unique character that translates into the beauty and immensity of the landscape.
Traveling south, we come to the Algarve. With more than 3000 hours of sunshine a year and a low average annual rainfall, the Algarve has a mild climate throughout the year, which is undoubtedly a great attraction for visitors, both in the summer for some days of beach as in winter to rest or to practice the most diverse activities.
Albufeira, the Capital of the Algarve Tourism, is full of famous sea and beaches.
Here, life has more rhythm and more color.
The bodies that sunbathe during the day, exhibit and shake when the sun goes down, in the restaurants, bars and nightclubs that illuminate the night.
Gastronomy, rich in fresh fish and seafood, grilled or in cataplanas, almond or fig candy, bitter almond liqueur or medronho spirit, good olive oil and wine, rejoice the soul of the locals and of all who visit Albufeira.
The Algarve Sea, in all shades of blue, is almost always calm and warm, and the fine white sand beaches are the brand image of the region.
From the out-of-sight beaches, bordered by golden cliffs to small bays nestled among rocks, there are many stunning settings for an unforgettable holiday.
It is about 200 kms of coast that offers exceptional conditions for practicing all kinds of water sports or magnificent boat trips.
Golf has yielded many international awards and distinctions, having even been considered the Best Golf destination in the World.
The Algarve has about forty courses with excellent conditions for both the most experienced players and those who are starting to practice the sport.
