Think of the Algarve and beautiful white-sand beaches, sensational Portuguese cuisine and temperate year-round sun are probably the first things that spring to mind. In many ways that's right, but with vibrant cultural history and tons of amazing activities, the city of Portimão offers far more than just a sun-soaked beach break.

Whether you're a golfer, thrillseeker or nature lover, there's always something exciting to do in Portimão. With top-class golf courses, skydiving and an incredible underwater world to dive into, you'll never have to just kick back and relax on the beach – not unless you want to, of course.

Heading out of town, nature lovers can hike or bike around the region's incredible trails, taking in the breathtaking birdlife of the gorgeous Alvor Estuary and some of the most incredible clifftop views in the Algarve.

Meanwhile, if you're more culture lover than adrenaline junkie, you can trade action for rich heritage. Starting your day in Portimão's museums and galleries, you can unearth fascinating history before exploring beautiful chapels and the Megalithic Monuments of Alcalar in the afternoon.

When you get peckish, in the cool waterfront restaurants of Alvor and Praia Da Rocha you'll find some of Portugal's greatest gastronomy and finest fish perfectly paired with a refreshing glass of Portimão wine.

Then, when the sun sets, the city comes to life. With bustling bars, lively clubs and even more amazing eateries all across the city, you're sure to have a night to remember.

With fantastic food, incredible culture and amazing adventures, Portimão in the Algarve is the perfect destination all year round.
