Portugal, the Perfect Holiday Destination

Friday, August 24, 2012

Portugal has for some time been an attractive tourist resort for many people, but over the last few years it has become even more popular. It is a well known fact that Portugal is very good value and the people are extremely friendly and welcoming.

Portugal has an amazing climate that provides the country with over three thousand hours of sunshine every year.

But there are several more reasons why Portugal has become so popular. Portugal is a beach lover's paradise with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, both in the southern Algarve and along the western Atlantic coast

The eastern Algarve area of Portugal is less frequented by tourists and offers quieter beaches, lagoons and lush green gardens filled with incredibly beautiful flora.

Central to northern Portugal is filled with spectacular landscapes of mountains, hills, valleys and long winding rivers where you can enjoy many wonderful adventures, as well as sampling some high quality wines and Portugal's famous Port and cheeses.

But above all the reason for Portugal's popularity is the country, the climate and the people.
