Best places to see in Portugal

Zoomarine Park
Attractions
When it comes to bucket lists, swimming with dolphins always seems to make the cut. Zoomarine Park offers you the chance to chalk this much-coveted experience off of yours! It’s part-aquarium, part-water park, combining all the best watery pursuits in one fun-filled place. Clap along with sea lions and gawp at seahorses, then pop on your swimmers for some flume-based frolics!

Albufeira Marina
Marinas
Welcome to Toytown! The apartment blocks around this marina are painted in nursery-school pastel shades. Even the shape of the windows recalls infant puzzles – one triangle, one square, one circle and so on. It all lends the harbour an air of fantastical nostalgia. Grab an ice cream, dangle your legs off a jetty and stroll down Albufeira Marina’s memory lane.

Sao Francisco Church
Landmarks
São Francisco Church is the epitome of opulence. You know you’re treading holy ground when you step into the warm, honeyed light of its interior. Look up in awe at its mass of gold, its intricate domed ceilings, and massive marble arches. You could spend a lifetime admiring the detail of the carved statues, banisters, and columns here.

25 de Abril Bridge
Landmarks
With its winding streets, creaking trams and laid-back vibe, Lisbon is often compared to San Francisco. Makes sense, right? Well this massive red suspension bridge seals the deal. Originally called Salazar Bridge after the Portuguese dictator of the time, it was renamed to commemorate the peaceful revolution that ousted his successors. Who knows what they’ll call it next…

Falesia Beach
Popular Areas
Fancy a bike ride? Point those handlebars towards Falésia! This beach is on Albufeira’s top cycling route, which winds down the coast from the Old Town. It runs through tiny whitewashed villages and pine copses, alongside the shimmering ocean. At the end of it lies the beach itself, lurking beneath a copper-coloured Martian crag of a cliff. Rent a bike and make a day of it.
Accommodations near Falesia Beach
Sao Rafael Beach
Popular Areas
A hidden gem. This little beach is tucked away behind cliff crags. These ancient, pock-marked strata of limestone create funky formations that encircle the sand. The cliffs are in a state of constant erosion from the lapping waves, which carve ever more indentations and holes. Pack up your towel and sneak down to Sao Rafael, but keep it to yourself or word will get out!
