Portimao

— 3 nights
Originally a small fishing village, Portimão today serves as one of the most populated towns in the Algarve and also a favorite spot for sailing.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portimao: Praia da Falesia (in Olhos de Agua), Ponta da Piedade (in Lagos) and Albufeira (Centro Historico de Albufeira & Speed Boats Tours). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia Da Rocha, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Alvor, take in the waterfront activity at Marina de Vilamoura, and relax and rejuvenate at Thai Massage Vilamoura.

To see maps, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Portimao trip planner.

Lisbon to Portimao is an approximately 3-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or take a train. In October, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) to allow time to drive back home.

Occupying the southernmost portion of Portugal's mainland, Algarve is wholeheartedly devoted to tourism and continuously ranks among Europe's top holiday destinations. Nearly 10 million annual visitors include Algarve on their itineraries, drawn mostly by the region's developed coastline, boasting nearly 200 km (125 mi) of impeccable beaches. Farther away from the water, the region offers an extensive network of hiking trails, ideal for active vacationers seeking a chance to explore a rugged southwestern corner of Europe once considered the very end of the world. If you need a few urban things to do on your vacation, head for the regional capital Faro, featuring a lively Old Town full of plazas, pedestrian lanes, and outdoor cafes.
