Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

With over 850km of coast, cliffs and white sandy beaches and a mild weather all year round, Portugal is a true paradise for sea-lovers. From the rough and fresh sea of the North to the calm and warmer South, there is a perfect match for everyone.

Portugal is without doubt a European hotspot for surfers. Here you can find all sorts of waves for all kind of surfing desires: the perfect tubular waves of Peniche, the giant waves of Nazaré, or the more secret beaches of Figueira da Foz. Ericeira, just north of Lisbon, was the first destination to obtain the distinction of "surf reserve" in Europe, and the second one in the World.

But if you are not into surf, Portugal still has plenty to offer. Its variety of natural landscapes and rich biodiversity, well-preserved villages and cities, and its amazing historical, cultural and gastronomic heritage, made Portugal a proud winner of the World Travel Awards 2017.
