Perhaps the well known of all Portugal’s holiday destinations, the Algarve receives on average 10 million visitors a year and continues to be Portugal’s biggest tourist destination and one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.
The Algarve is famous for its amazing weather, golden beaches and championship golf courses with towns like Albufeira, Vilamoura, Lagos and most recently Tavira and Olhao, proving the most popular destinations amongst holiday makers.
The Portuguese capital, after Barcelona, is the European city that attracts the most tourists and has won numerous travel awards as one of the best city-break destinations in the world. Millions of people visit Lisbon yearly, not only for the sunny beaches, but also to experience the culture, world heritage sites, gastronomy and vibrant night life.
The incredible public transport system enables tourists to explore the city and enjoy all the monuments, castles, monasteries and culture that Lisbon has to offer.
Cascais is one of Portugal’s most exclusive residential areas, a prime location for upper class Portuguese families, but also very much appreciated by foreign families who also chose Cascais for its tranquillity and quality of life.
Cascais offers images of rare beauty and unforgettable moments: the gentleness of the Cascais bay, contrasts with the force of the ocean at Guincho Beach and Cabo da Roca and with the backdrop of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park in all its splendour.
Cabo da Roca is the westernmost point of continental Europe where “the land ends and the sea begins”.
Cascais Marina and Bay is, by design, the setting for great International events. In recent years it has been the host to great contests, including the America’s Cup World Series Cascais 2011, the 49er European Championship, The Round Portugal Sailing Tour, among many other competitions which have distinguished Cascais Marina in Portugal and in the World. These great competitions have made the Marina a meeting place not only for sailors but also for royalty from Old Europe, some of whom are themselves fans of the sea and sailing, as is the case of King Juan Carlos I of Spain, Constantine of Greece and Harold of Norway.
The Estoril Coast is one of the most sought after resorts for golfing in Portugal. The reasons are plain to see: courses designed by leading architects, with excellent conditions and infra structures complemented by a hotel and cultural offer that makes your stay even more enjoyable. The region now has seven 18-hole courses, offering a variety of options all with a unique design and a proven quality. Two of them are ranked among the 50 best golf courses in Europe. Throughout the year, the climate of Estoril Coast offers the best conditions to practice this sport.
