An endless coastline (943 km)
A coast so big that you’ll loose sight
Portugal means beach A long coast (943 km of coastline), where all the beaches have fine white sand, a long summer, and many hours of sunshine throughout the entire year make Portugal the natural holiday destination choice. It is not by chance that in 2020 the Algarve was elected the ‘Best Beach Destination in the World’ for the second year running. This award presented by the World Travel Awards is an annual event which highlights the best examples in the tourism and travel industry categories. Portugal’s natural beauty is not only immense, but extraordinarily diversified. You can pass through dense forests, valleys, river beaches with waterfalls hidden in the ‘serras’ and all of this in a short space of time on a journey full of constant surprises. You come across unspoilt beauty spread out across the country, populated by a wide variety of species of flora and fauna where Man and Nature live in perfect harmony. Protected to maintain their biodiversity, many areas are classified as Parks and Nature Reserves.
Some of these beaches are:
Vale de Lobo
Quinta do Lago
Some parks and nature reserves are:
Peneda-Gerês National Park, the only Natural Park classifed as such.
