We don’t know about you, but summer always has us dreaming of a little getaway.
We’ve always heard amazing things about Portugal, but have never actually visited. And these pictures are making us want to hop on a plane right away!
Alluring beaches and dramatic scenery are the hallmarks of this incredible country.
Stunning Algarve is full of sandy bays, secluded coves and fabulous resorts for every taste. From fun and lively spots to sleepy fishing villages, it’s one of those places that caters to a variety of travelers. And it’s said to have the best golfing in Europe!
The stunning island of Madeira has long been on our list of “must visit” places. It has been nicknamed Floating Garden because it’s filled with breathtaking botanicals like these!
The town itself is a mix of chic and swanky restaurants and boutiques and traditional markets and cozy tavernas.
We just adore those destinations where you can get dressed up one day and be totally relaxed the next.
Teeny, tiny Porto Santo is a traveler’s dream.
The 10-kilometer sandy beach is absolutely stunning and, since it’s a newcomer in the world of travel, it’s pretty much free of tourists!
And the town is full of charming cobbled paths and whitewashed houses.
Portugal is an absolutely stunning country, and, as a plus, visiting would give me a chance to brush off those five semesters of Portuguese I took in college!
But, with beaches like this, the best part of traveling is that we probably wouldn’t have to say much of anything at all!
