Many people are desperate for a holiday in 2021, but obviously, options are limited, and you will need to take great care no matter where you go.
A great climate
Not having to quarantine will be hugely appealing to holidaymakers along with the fact that Portugal has been deemed safe to travel to, but it is not just because it is available why it is such a good option. Portugal boasts an incredible climate at the southern tip of Europe, so it will be a fantastic feeling soaking up the sun particularly after having spent so much time cooped up inside in recent times.
Something for everyone
In addition to the fabulous weather, Portugal also boasts beautiful beaches, stunning countryside, sleepy fishing villages and lively cities like Lisbon, so there is certainly something for everyone here and it is a great place for adventure holidays. On top of this, Portugal is famed for its food with fresh seafood being something that you have to try here. For those that like a drink or two, Portuguese wine is amongst the finest in the world and there are many fantastic wineries to explore on a trip here.
Portugal has a lot to offer but this also means that it can be hard to know where to go on a holiday here. The Algarve is often the first place to spring to mind and if you are seeking hot temperatures and sandy beaches then this should be on the top of your list this summer. The Algarve boasts many excellent resorts and is also a good place for golf if you fancy a round or two. Faro is the capital of the region and a beautiful city with neoclassical architecture and cobbled streets.
Lisbon & Lagos
Lisbon is obviously another popular destination and a capital city quite unlike any other. It is a beautiful city surrounded by natural beauty, with a river meandering through the town along with cobbled streets and old pastel-coloured buildings. Lisbon is well-known for its culture and nightlife, so those seeking fun will certainly have a good time here. Lagos in the Algarve is a good alternative if you are looking for a city as a walled old town but also somewhere that still has beaches for lounging around and soaking up the sun.
Portugal will be a great place for a holiday this year and somewhere that would certainly help people to de-stress, unwind and recharge after such a stressful and difficult period.
