There is a reason why Algarve, Portugal should be on your must visit list. If you have scrolled through Instagram lately, then you know Portugal is a must see place. It has turned up on many must visit lists. It has a rich culture and a beautiful atmosphere. There are brand new resorts popping up along the coastline of Algarve. It is only a matter of time before it is no longer an obscure place. It is amazingly beautiful.
- Although equal in beauty to neighboring Mediterranean mainstays like Majorca and St.-Tropez, the Algarve is still enjoying relative obscurity
- Beaches are the biggest draw, with more than 150 rolling out their wide, golden shores like welcome mats
- The Atlantic coast isn’t the only place to enjoy the water in the Algarve. Ria Formosa nature park, with its lagoons, sand dunes, islands, marshes, and mudflats, makes for exceptional hiking
“While scores of travelers are drawn to the vibrant cities of Lisbon and Porto, would-be visitors should also look to the south—namely, the Algarve region—for an under the radar coastal retreat that’s full of authentic Portuguese pleasures.”
