Great beaches, beautiful cities, amazing food, and engaging with a unique culture and history. Here are some of the many reasons why to visit Portugal.
Oceanario De Lisboa
The oceanarium in Lisbon is one of the best places to visit if travelling with children and it is dedicated to educating the public on marine conservation. The aquarium is full of a variety of creatures and you will find four separate ecosystems that are divided geographically to represent the Antartic, Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Just some of the species you will find here are Sharks, rays, sea otters, and penguins.
Torre De Belem
Located in the Belem district of Lisbon is this iconic tower built in 1521. The aim of the fortification was to guard against an invasion via the River Tagus and the building is considered a master class in how to build a successful fortress. Make sure not to miss the maritime touches carved into the stone such as ropes and armillary sphere. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, which tells you everything you need to know about its beauty.
The 25th April Bridge
This large suspension bridge is one of the most recognizable sights in Lisbon and offers you the best views of the city. Unlike some other suspension bridges there is no pedestrian walkway here but you can drive or take a train across and enjoy the River Tagus that sprawls beneath you. The bridge also has a claim to fame of having the biggest span in all of Europe so this is a pretty special spot to visit if you are in Lisbon.
Ponta Da Piedade
The headland south of Lagos is nothing short of stunning. The tortured limestone stacks and cliffs have a reddish tone and are honeycombed with natural arches and caves. You can take the steps down to the clear waters which are protected by the rocks and has an enchanting emerald colour. To experience it all you can gaze at the view from the headland, which stretches all the way to Cape St Vincent in the west and then head back to Lagos to board a motorboat for a voyage exploring the caves and creeks.
At all of the main marinas along the Algarve you’ll see ocean boat trips advertised. There’s deep sea fishing for example, but the experience you will really treasure is dolphin spotting. There are large numbers of common and bottlenose dolphins in the ocean off the Algarve, so you’ve almost guaranteed to have a successful expedition. This is also made easier by the creatures’ inquisitive nature and before you know it pods of up to 50 will be keeping you company. The best companies bring a marine biologist along to give you added insights about the dolphins habits and physiology.
