Explore the beach & Ocean

Because of Portugal’s convenient location, it offers a wondourus coastline stretching 1,794 kilometers, this coastline certainly doesn’t disappoint.

If you’re looking for the most secluded, unspoilt beaches in the peak of summer one of our top recommendations would be the Praia Forte do Paço which is located an hour northwest of Porto. Here you will discover 800 meters of beach, coves and untouched landscape.

If you’re looking to stay closer to Lisbon and explore the coastline, we would recommend visiting Guincho beach which is often used in many movies such as James Bond. Here you can relax on the white golden sand while watching the beautiful sunset, perfect to unwind after a long day.

There are many ocean activities that you can make a hobby of when you live in Portugal. Take a kayak and explore the caves, swim with the dolphins in the Azores or enjoy a boat trip along the coastline. If the sea is your passion, Portugal has a lot to offer!

It's fantastic how Ryan had complete knowledge regarding Lisbon and dealt with us in a great manner.

Akbar Ali - Investor from Pakistan

Ryan is very professional, but also friendly and knowledgeable about the Golden Visa market. He was also flexible as travelled from the Algarve to meet me in Lisbon to stand in for 1 colleague at short notice.

Investor from UK

Portugal Homes did a great job keeping me up to date with progress on my new home construction purchase by providing regular and comprehensive reports. This helped to ease anxieties about doing a home purchase in the midst of a global pandemic.

Investor from the USA

Although through Zoom, we established great confidence in George's integrity. [It was] important for us to have confidence in the staff's ability to feel aligned in views.

Donald Collie from Australia

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.

Tomoko Inoue from Japan

Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
