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!

The Algarve

The Algarve is located towards the south of Portugal and is well known for its golf resorts, white sand beaches and fishing villages. Although the Algarve is popular with holidaymakers, many like to live here because of the ideal geographical location.
