Portugal is one of Europe’s most magical destinations. From the muddle of terracotta rooftops in Lisbon to the port houses of Porto and the lush Douro Valley, there is so much to explore. It is also less hectic than some of its neighbouring European countries, which makes it a wonderfully relaxing honeymoon destination.
For those looking for some beach time, head to the Algarve. Here you can unwind on the soft sand, dine on fish fresh from the sea and walk hand-in-hand through the gentle surf. If you’re feeling adventurous, hire some boards and catch a wave or two, before spending an evening mingling with the locals in a cosy tasquinha nearby.
Step back in time into a medieval fairy-tale as you stroll along the picturesque streets of Monsaraz, or let your imaginations take flight at some of the country’s most impressive palaces. For those that like the culture and buzz of a city, Lisbon and Porto will not disappoint. Both are full of charm with fascinating histories.
If you’re looking to completely relax and unwind, you couldn’t do better than the Six Senses Douro Valley. The properties look out over the vineyards and the winding Douro River, and the service here is second to none.
Whether you’re keen to spend as much time as possible soaking up the romance of the countryside, exploring bustling cities, or starting your new life together with some adrenaline-fuelled outdoor activities, let your Travel Designer help plan the perfect honeymoon for you.
