Map of South Portugal
Cities and Towns of South Portugal

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.

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.

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.
Regions of South Portugal
Algarve East
The cities and towns of the eastern Algarve are quieter than the towns to the west, but they are nonetheless very welcoming to all types of tourists. The cities claim scores of historic buildings, lots of old-world charm, a subdued way of life, relaxation and entertainment in equal measure. This area is also famous for having the warmest ocean waters in Portugal!
Algarve West
The cities and towns of the western Algarve, once sleepy fishing villages, are now some of the most-visited portions of Portugal, with domestic and international vacationers converging on the southern coast of the country for fun in the sun, great food and nightlife options, and lots of shopping. This is likely the Algarve you have heard stories about!
Alentejo Coast
The region of Portugal known as the Alentejo Coast stands at a crossroads between rolling hills and farmland and some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Using the region`s largest city, Santiago do Cacem, as a base, you can explore the coast from the Troia Peninsula to the Vicentine Coast Natural Park.
Alentejo Golden Plains
The rolling hills and lush valleys of the Alentejo`s Golden Plains region are a traveler`s delight. The people who live here live life at a slower pace, and it is easy for tourists to feel at home in such a relaxing environment. The slower pace of these vast open plains and scenic beauty belies its vast olive oil and wine production.
Experiences & Adventures

Portugal has so many beautiful sights, you might want a car to explore everything - from the major highways connecting large cities to the small, two-lane roads that traverse the countryside. Enjoy your trip and have fun experiencing scenic Portugal on the most iconic road trip of your lives!

Portugal has a long, eventful history, but in the rush for tourists to visit the biggest sights, sometimes beautiful and paramount cities like Fatima or Castelo Branco get lost in the shuffle. These charming towns are every bit as important as their more popular siblings, so take a look at these overlooked destinations.

Tourists flock to Portugal for many reasons, from its rich history to its incredible food, but its beautiful beaches often steal the show. The coastline stretches from the dreamy Algarve in the South to the popular Costa Verde wine region in the north, and we can`t forget Madeira Island and the Azores!
More to Explore
The Azores
1,000 miles west of mainland Portugal, the warmth and beauty of the Azores envelop all five of visitors` senses. The Renaissance-era avenues of Ponta Delgada; the lush fields of Sao Miguel; Terceira Island, where UNESCO World Heritage-listed Angra do Heroismo is located; and rugged Faial Island, dotted by volcanoes, enthrall travelers.
Madeira Island
Madeira is a beautiful and fascinating island located 300 miles off the coast of Morocco that makes for a wonderful year-round holiday destination. Madeira offers stunning natural scenery, with massive mountains, jagged cliffs, lush forests and delightful flower gardens. The people of Madeira, an autonomous region of Portugal, are welcoming and hospitable.
Canary Islands
Situated just off the southwestern coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands have been popular vacation destinations for decades. The Canary Islands offer breathtaking landscapes, beautiful beaches, lots of shopping and entertainment opportunities, and of course over 600 years of Spanish architectural influence and history.

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.
