Popular Destinations in Portugal
Visit the stunning capital of Portugal, Lisbon. It is dubbed one of the most charismatic cities in Europe and is filled to the brim with a mixture of tradition and modernity.
Its mild, year-round climate makes it the perfect holiday destination for those chasing the sun, as temperatures rarely fall below 15 degrees Celsius all year.
Lisbon offers seemingly endless historical sites and cultural trips, so there is something for everyone in this large town.
Relax on the miles of sandy beaches in the Algarve. While it is most known for its gorgeous stretches of golden sand and warm weather, the Algarve boasts some of Portugal's most historical and charming Old Towns.
The area's capital, Faro, has remained virtually untouched since the 18th century, its quaint neighbourhoods beautifully intact.
Visit the Fortaleza de Sagres, a fortress built in the 15th century, and immerse yourself into the culture of this historic region, or unwind on the shore of one of Europe's most famous seascapes.
Explore the capital of the north, Porto. This town is famed for the sweet alcoholic drink of Port, and you'll find many tasting tours available in this region, or you can visit one of the numerous bars along the riverfront.
You can also rent a boat to cruise along the river or take a stroll and visit all the historical monuments and pretty beaches this old city offers.
I was surfing in Ericeira, the busiest beach town close to the capital.
Historically, it is a small fishing town, and many head to Ericeira to catch the waves and soak up some sun.
If surfing doesn't interest you, have a paddle or fill your stomach at one of the many restaurants serving delicious traditional Portuguese food.
Take a stroll in the lush greenery of Sintra. A mere 30-minute train journey from Lisbon, costing only £2, you can find yourself in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra.
This town has gorgeous lakes and lovely beaches against lush, green, rolling hills.
Visit the Castle of the Moors, and absorb the sights of the whole town. Or take a trip up to Pena Palace, recently named one of the seven wonders of Portugal.
Travel Risks in Portugal
Crime rates in Portugal are low, but pickpocketing and theft remain problematic in busy and 'touristy' areas. Always stay vigilant of your surroundings and keep your belongings where you can see them.
Pushy drug dealers are also typical in some areas of Portugal, even in broad daylight. Ignore them if you can, as responding to them may cause them to keep pushing. Always travel in pairs, especially after dark, to minimise crime risk.
