Must Visit: Algarave, Portugal – a Place To Warm Up During the Winter

February 10, 2012 by

When it’s winter I usually look for a warm place to get some sunshine and warm my body a little, during my research where to go this year I heard about Algarave in Portugal.

With some of Europe’s most beautiful beaches, some of the continent’s top golf courses, magnificent cliff scenery, fantastic grottoes, and warm year-round climate, it was inevitable that Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost province, would become the country’s most popular travel destination. Almost completely destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, it has less cultural attractions than other parts of the country, but its scenic beauty more than makes up for it.

Most visitors to Portugal go to Algarve, and many of them don’t leave their resorts to explore more of the country. The reasons are the beaches and views of extraordinary beauty, the year-round sunshine, and its sports and leisure activities. However, there are also historic towns like Faro, Sagres (known as “the end of the world” before the Age of Discovery), and Lagos, all well worth exploring.
