Portugal's best-known holiday region is the Algarve, famous for its year-round championship golf courses, lively social scenes and beaches that range from broad swathes of golden sand to small and sheltered coves.
The relatively recent tourist development has done little to change the area's intrinsic character. You will still find little inland villages where time seems to have stood still and unspoilt fishing villages, modestly fortified against any future Moorish invasion, where local restauranteurs queue at the quay to select the menu for the evening ahead.
Best time to be there
Spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to visit. July and August can be very hot, especially in the sheltered bays of the
Algarve in the south, though this region is especially pleasant and mild during the winter months. Madeira and the Azores benefit from the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, so can be visited year round.
