South Portugal Vacation Packages


Southern Portugal is a gem in the country`s crown! There are sleepy villages, wide open plains, olive groves, wineries, beaches, history, nightlife, and so much more. Faro is the entry point, and it lands in the middle of the celebrated Algarve region - known across the world for its glorious sunny beaches. What most don`t know is there is more to be had here than lazy days on the sand - Dancing, great food, museums, natural parks, surfing and other watersports all work to entice a variety of people to visit. Faro is also the perfect spot for hopping to Madeira Island or even over into southern Spain.The Alentejo Golden Plains lie just north of the Algarve. It is easily drivable and well worth a visit for the vineyards, olive groves, and pre-historic landmarks.

Regions of South Portugal

  • Algarve East

    The cities and towns of the eastern Algarve are quieter than the towns to the west, but they are nonetheless very welcoming to all types of tourists. The cities claim scores of historic buildings, lots of old-world charm, a subdued way of life, relaxation and entertainment in equal measure. This area is also famous for having the warmest ocean waters in Portugal!

  • Algarve West

    The cities and towns of the western Algarve, once sleepy fishing villages, are now some of the most-visited portions of Portugal, with domestic and international vacationers converging on the southern coast of the country for fun in the sun, great food and nightlife options, and lots of shopping. This is likely the Algarve you have heard stories about!

  • Alentejo Coast

    The region of Portugal known as the Alentejo Coast stands at a crossroads between rolling hills and farmland and some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Using the region`s largest city, Santiago do Cacem, as a base, you can explore the coast from the Troia Peninsula to the Vicentine Coast Natural Park.

  • Alentejo Golden Plains

    The rolling hills and lush valleys of the Alentejo`s Golden Plains region are a traveler`s delight. The people who live here live life at a slower pace, and it is easy for tourists to feel at home in such a relaxing environment. The slower pace of these vast open plains and scenic beauty belies its vast olive oil and wine production.
