The beautiful country of Portugal has always been a hit with British holidaymakers, with its cluster of beautiful cities, its pristine beaches, its great golfing resorts and its wonderful culture. From the cosmopolitan cities of Porto and Lisbon to the southern beach resorts that are family favourites, there’s something for everyone in Portugal.
Lisbon is Portugal’s capital and an increasingly popular destination with tourists. With a distinctly Mediterranean feel, Lisbon has a variety of world-famous museums and heritage sites, plus plenty of beautiful local beaches for those looking to top up their tan.
Funchal was declared a city in its own right back in the 1500s and is now renowned as the capital of Madeira, the autonomous island just off the coast of North Africa. The city is now renowned for its wine and crafts, and it continues to attract visitors that are looking for a city break without the bustle of most European capitals.
With twenty different beaches to choose from, a wealth of golf courses and an array of family-friendly hotels, Albufeira is the prime holiday destination in Portugal. The area sits at the very southern tip of Portugal, offering spectacular sunsets and views, as well as breath-taking cliffs and historic fortresses.
But what happens when your dream trip to Portugal goes horribly wrong? Accidents, injuries and illnesses are thankfully fairly rare, but when they do happen to tourists, they can ruin an entire holiday.
