Portugal is a beautiful destination, with plenty to appeal to all kinds of holidaymaker. If you want nightlife, you've got it at the big hitters of the Algarve, Faro and Lagos, plus the popular holiday resort Albufeira. If want history and culture then the Medieval cities and towns will transport you back in time, and, for beautiful beaches, the Algarve never fails to deliver. Whatever type of holiday you want, you'll find it in Portugal.
Faro is the capital of the Algarve, the southernmost strip of Portuguese coast that boasts the golden sands and glorious landscapes that attract tourists year after year. It's a traditional town at heart, despite being the gateway to the coastal holiday resorts due to its airport.
There's enough going on in Faro to make it a prime holiday spot in itself, including its miles of sweeping sands – a mecca for sunbathers, sandcastle builders and windsurfers alike. Even if you're flying into Faro on route to somewhere else, it's well worth taking a day out of your itinerary to explore its historic old town, grand theatres, pretty plazas and refreshing green spaces.
Just 45 minutes along the coast from Faro you have the popular summer resort of Albufeira. This pretty seaside city manages to effortlessly combine the cobbled streets, traditional restaurants and authentic shops of the old town with the modern, rainbow-coloured builds of the marina, the bustling nightlife of the San Joao strip and, not one but two, beautiful beaches. Families, couples and fun-loving groups alike flock to Albufeira for its ability to be a holiday chameleon, changing its colours to suit.
A little further on you come to another prime destination, Lagos. Another old meets new Portuguese city, Lagos boasts a collection of golden sand beaches. Whether you choose a popular stretch like the Meia Praia or Praia de Batata, complete with beach bars and watersports, or you want to escape the crowds at the cliff-flanked Camilo or Dona Ana beaches, you're sure to find the sandy stretch that's perfect for you.
Whether you fancy Portugal for its glorious beaches, or you're in it for the historic city sights, holidays here always deliver. Book your cheap flights to Portugal with Thomascook Airlines and embrace the sunny delights of this Mediterranean gem.
