Portugal – Recreation and Entertainment
Beaches, watermarks, and aquariums are not all Portugal has to offer. Our country also has over eighty stunning golf courses with fantastic, high quality landscapes. If you are interested in this sport, Portugal is just the right place for you. Even though you can find a golf course in almost any part of the country, there are two main golf regions in Portugal: Lisbon Golf Coast and The Algarve Golf Courses.
Lisbon Golf Coast – There are no less than twenty four golf courses in these area, stretching from Setubal to Estoril, and from Cascais to Sintra.
The Algarve Golf Courses – You can choose between thirty different courses in this area, located all around Lagos, Tavira, Vale de Lobo, Portimão, Quinta de Lago, Silves, Vilamoura, and Albufeira.
High-class, leisure complexes all around Portugal also offer golf, as well as tennis, other sports, and fantastic spas, all combined with luxury accommodation. Praia D’El Rey Golf&Beach Resort, located on Portugal’s Silver Coast, is one of the most popular resorts of such high standard.
Beautiful national parks, full of stunning nature, rare animals, and amazing natural phenomena, can also be found in Portugal. If this is more to your taste, we highly recommend you visit at least one of the following: Rio Famosa, Peneda-Geres National Park, Duoro River Valley, Montesinho, and North Coast National Park.
Estrela Mountins, located in Serra de Estrela area, are magnificent mountains which is a popular place for hiking, especially in winter, thanks to its fantastic vistas and the highest plateu in Portugal.
Portugal and its beautiful mountains also provide opportunities for other entertaining activities, such as: Mountain biking, quad biking, and horse riding.
With food and wine being such major part of Portuguese culture, it comes as no surprise that wine-tasting is a rather popular activity in Portugal. It is more than just tasting some of the best quality Portuguese wine; It is also an opportunity to visit our beautiful vineyards, and learn about local traditions and production techniques.
If, however, your idea of fun assumes a cozy seat, a good movie, and a bucker of popcorn, Portugal has something to offer to you too. For your enjoyment, you can find many multiplex cinemas all over the country. You don’t speak Portuguese? Do not worry. All foreign movies in Portugal are subbed, rather than dubbed, so you can still fully enjoy the experience of watching a good movie in our country.
