South Portugal: Point of Interest Map
Close [X]
South Portugal

Major Cities

Faro as a holiday destination is often overlooked, regarded simply as a point of entry to southern Portugal, but this is a disservice to its peaceful ambience and traditional charm.

Beja, situated on a hill high above the Alentejo`s Golden Plains, boasts a history that stretches back to the time of the Celts & Romans.

Albufeira is perhaps best-known for its status as a sun-and-fun resort destination, with its popular road known colloquially as `The Strip;` full of shops, restaurants and bars.
Surrounding Areas

Known for its quieter, more subdued way of life, visitors to this side of the Algarve enjoy a more family conducive atmosphere. As a bonus, the East side offers less tourist traps and great beaches.

The West side of the Algarve is busy, loud, and brash. The cities on this side offer lively entertainment, music, clubs, and plenty of sunny shoreline. This is likely the Algarve you have heard stories about!

Known for vast open plains, scenic beauty, and olive groves and vineyards, this area thrives but at a much slower pace than the remainder of the country. It is here where travelers can let their hair down and take a breather.
WHY SOUTH PORTUGAL?

Southern Portugal is a gem in the country`s crown! There are sleepy villages, wide open plains, olive groves, wineries, beaches, history, nightlife, and so much more. Faro is the entry point, and it lands in the middle of the celebrated Algarve region - known across the world for its glorious sunny beaches. What most don`t know is there is more to be had here than lazy days on the sand - Dancing, great food, museums, natural parks, surfing and other watersports all work to entice a variety of people to visit. Faro is also the perfect spot for hopping to Madeira Island or even over into southern Spain.The Alentejo Golden Plains lie just north of the Algarve. It is easily drivable and well worth a visit for the vineyards, olive groves, and pre-historic landmarks.
