Beaches and bunkers
Platefuls of just-caught sardines, world-class golf courses, 300 days of sun a year… Portugal certainly isn’t short on assets. Add in the Algarve’s famous beaches and you’ve got a patch of the map that holidaymakers can't get enough of.
The Algarve’s big draw is its coastline – it throws up everything from big sweeps to blink-and-you’ll-miss-them coves. Lining the route you’ve got sleepy villages, like Olhos d’Agua and Sao Rafael. And if you fancy something with a bit more of a kick, there’s the ever-popular town of Albufeira.
To the south of the mainland lies Madeira. It’s been nicknamed ‘the garden island’, thanks to its bumper crop of botanical gardens. When you’re not busy smelling the flowers, quaff a glass of sweet Madeira wine in the sleepy squares of Funchal, the island’s capital.
From Madeira, trace your finger north on the map and you’ll come to Porto Santo. This tiny, relatively undiscovered island is all about long stretches of sand, volcanic peaks and textbook Portuguese villages.
