Portugal is a paradise for golfers thanks to a selection of top quality courses and year-round temperate weather. Although there are only 80 courses in the country, they are spread throughout the region, offering golf tourists varying aspects of the beautiful countryside. Golf in Portugal offers you great value too, making it a popular choice with those taking their first golfing vacation abroad. It’s a charming, vibrant country that offers the avid golfer an amazing vacation experience on and off the course.
Aside from playing many rounds of golf, here are some of the things you can do to help make your golfing vacation to Portugal an outstanding experience.
Within the Algarve region alone you’ll find thirty-five courses with more than half offering views of the coast. A number of Golf Academies have their home in Western and Central Algarve making it ideal for beginners where you can work on the basics before taking on the tougher courses. The city of Lisbon also offers a wide range of championship golf courses including Penha Longa and Quinta da Marinha. Public transport is plentiful and easy to use throughout the major cities so you’ll have no trouble exploring several courses during your stay.
With a coastline of 586 miles, Portugal has some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Some can be busy and crowded, but there are pockets of quiet unexplored beauty to be found too, especially in the Algarve. With hot summers, mild winters and plenty of sunshine all year round, you don’t have to restrict your visit to a particular season. And with so many golf courses located close the coast you can easily slip away from the tee to enjoy some sun, sea and sand.
The superb weather means that many Portuguese enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle. Naturally you can expect to find all manner of water sports like surfing, sailing and dolphin spotting available at the beaches. If you want to try something different, grab a canoe and try rafting on some of Portugal’s rivers. Head for the mountains for a hike with breath-taking views or go underground and explore some spectacular caves.
Portugal is filled with a long and fascinating history, so why not take the chance to explore some of the heritage on offer. The museums offer everything from ancient roman ruins to contemporary art so you’re sure to find something that appeals.
As far as wining and dining goes you’ll be spoilt for choice, especially if you’re a fan of seafood. There’s no need to eat every meal at your resort hotel when there is so much on offer. It will also give you a chance to interact with the locals and make new friends.
Indulge in some luxury. It is a holiday after all, and you’ll need some pampering after spending all that time walking the magnificent greens. Why not try out some Thalassotherapy? It’s a treatment based on the use of sea water and sea products to provide a feeling of wellness and relaxation.
