How about Portugal for honeymoon?

Palaces, beaches and 5 star resorts all make Portugal the perfect honeymoon location

Portugal for honeymoon? Charming and unique, Portugal is a wonderful European destination full of history, culture, stunning beaches and world class food and wine. Here are some places to consider for your honeymoon in Portugal.

Lisbon
The Lisbon area is a perfect location for newlyweds who wish to enjoy some unique day tours plus luxury hotels and restaurants and beautiful beaches. Classic architecture, tiled patterned pavements, bustling cafes and tree lined squares make up the area of Lisbon’s downtown Baixa district, the city’s beating heart. Begin your explorations here where you’ll find the No 28 Tram – the famous, yellow wooden tram will take you to some of the best corners of Lisbon, and is among the most affordable and efficient ways to soak in the city’s sights and sounds. Hop on board (or follow its tracks on foot) for a self-guided tour through charming, photogenic neighborhoods. Walk through the Alfama district, Lisbon’s oldest area, and enjoy the maze of historic buildings and tiny plazas before slipping inside a local bar or restaurant for dinner and a fado show. Fado is a soulful translation of the Portuguese spirit, both beautiful and melancholic music, and its sounds resonates throughout the district.

Sintra 

Throughout history some of Portugal’s greatest authors and artists have sought inspiration in fairytale Sintra. With castles and peaks beyond your imagination it’s the most romantic destination in Portugal. Visit the delightful and colourful Pena Palace and ancient Castelo dos Mouros then wander the pretty Sintra village to take in some lunch. Once you’ve soaked in the charms of Sintra, head to the coast. Soak in the vistas from Cabo do Roca and spend time sunning on the uncrowded beaches such as Praia da Adraga.

 

Comporta 

Secluded golden beaches, wild sand dunes and clear water all make Comporta’s coastal charms unforgettable. Comporta is (for now) a little-known fishing village and its surrounding beaches are in southern Portugal, a short drive from Lisbon. Comporta remains largely undiscovered by tourists. At Praia da Comporta enjoy fabulous beachside seafood restaurants and chilled vibes. Explore the tiny boutique and artisan shops on Rua Dom Afonso Henriques and Rua do Secador in the village where embroidered kaftans, silken cushions and other suitcase-bound souvenirs await. 


Alentejo 
Olive and cork trees dot the Alentejo landscape in this rustic farm-filled region. The perfect region to visit excellent 5* wineries, enjoy cycling or walking tours, cork factories and organic olive oil groves. Hilltop villages with artisan workshops including ceramics and traditional rug weaving are all available to join. All local adventures include either the landscape and nature or rural, traditional ways of working. Be sure to taste the best Alentejo dish – carne de porco à alentejana- a dish made with fried cubed pork, fried potatoes and clams in a garlic sauce.

"Bruno took my daughter and I on a private tour of these three beautiful cities. He was a great guide, very attentive and informative. He offered a lot of insight on Portuguese people and culture. He went above and beyond any tour guide we have had in the past. Greatly enjoyed Bruno’s tour, enthusiasm, and company for the day. "
