• Clean beaches and clear water highlight Portugal's Algarve region

    2010-03-30

    The summer is coming and many travelers left embittered by the biting cold of the past winter are anxious to hit the beaches of some far off and exotic land. One country many vacationers may have overlooked in their planning is Portugal, and there are few destinations in the country better suited for warm weather relaxation than the beauteous region of Algarve.

    Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal and its clear, unpolluted water and miles of pristine, glistening beaches has helped make it the most popular vacation destination for native Portuguese and international tourists.

    Beachgoers' first destination should be the city of Lagos. In addition to beautiful white, sandy beaches like Ponta da Piedade, the city's historical district provides a memorable view of ancient Portugal including castle walls, small winding streets and the mysterious and spooky bone chapel called Capela Dos Ossos.

    Fans seeking more history might also enjoy a trip to the municipality of Silves, a small but elegant city just outside of the city of Faro. The key site of the city is the majestic red stone castle, a traditional Moorish structure that once served as the capital of the Algarve.
