Portugal - Oceans Country
Why Portugal? We know you enjoy travelling, so why even bother to attempt to refuse this suggestion: discover this country’s unique charms – its monuments, modern architecture, museums and intricate details...Why wait?
The mild climate, a coastline of splendid sun-kissed beaches bathed by the Atlantic and stretching over 2.700 kilometers, a highly diversified range of accommodation, night life and many things to do, all help to make Portugal the perfect holiday destination for all seasons.
While it's true that Portugal is no longer Europe's best-kept secret, it's fairly easy to escape the crowds. Even at the busiest resorts in the Algarve, it only takes a short bus ride or a walk across the countryside to reveal rarely visited places that still offer the feeling of discovery - a sentiment close to the Portuguese soul. Portugal has an old-fashioned charm, with medieval castles and picture-perfect villages scattered over meandering coastlines and flower-covered hillsides. From the ancient university town of Coimbra to Lord Byron's favourite Portuguese haunt, Sintra, the country's proud history can be felt everywhere.
With it's proud past deeply present in Portugal's maritime heart, the Country of the Oceans has been ready to host the Portugal Ocean Race for over 500 years.
Portugal all year round, the perfect getaway.
