The 3 most beautiful coastal towns in Portugal 2022

Portugal Küstenstädte

The holiday season is approaching and the demand for a nice trip to the coasts of Portugal is increasing. But which coastal cities are worth a visit? We've put together a top 3 pick for your perfect trip to Portugal in 2022:

1. Olhão

The influence of the Arab world on the culture of the Algarve is evident in the town of Olhão. The architecture there is unique on the entire southern coast of the country. In fact, the oriental-inspired design of the buildings in the seaside resort is one of the main reasons for travellers to spend their time in the Algarve in Olhão.

Another reason to visit Olhão is the weekly market. Every Saturday, numerous traders gather with locals and travellers in the market street right by the sea to trade in a picturesque setting and enjoy the unique flair.

2. Lagos

Lagos, in the west of the Algarve, is considered by many Portugal holidaymakers to be the most beautiful resort on the entire south coast of Portugal.

This is not surprising, as Lagos convinces with an idyllic old town, dreamlike beaches and cliffs as well as an active nightlife and many possibilities for leisure activities. For example, you can hike from one dream beach to the next or kayak through caves in the rocks. And with the Ponta da Piedade you have one of Portugal's landmarks, which is perfect as a photo motif.

Due to the great popularity of the seaside resort, the city centre and the particularly beautiful bays of Lagos can become quite crowded, especially in the summer months. However, if you are looking for a beach holiday with a party guarantee, Lagos is always a good place to be.

3. Comporta

People don't travel to Comporta to spend their time in exclusive nightclubs or luxurious shopping areas, but for the charming artists' villages and their picturesque natural landscape. Galé-Fontaínhas beach is certainly one of the most spectacular beaches and definitely worth a visit.

A landscape of contrasts and untouched nature that you can't get enough of. The ocean is perfect for sailing, surfing or - with a bit of luck - dolphin watching. Or book a balloon ride over the Sado Reserve and explore the beautiful area with all its treasures from above at sunrise.
