If you’re seeking the perfect sailing holiday, Cascais remains one of the most famous Portuguese destinations. Set off from the marina to discover the secrets of the closest coast to Lisbon.
In the Algarve, you’ll find companies that rent out sailboats, either with or without a crew. Lagos, Portimão and Vilamoura are also home to marinas where you can hire a unique ‘floating apartment’ for the length of your stay. If you only want to make a few trips up and down the coast, then the Algarve has countless solutions to provide you with the ideal day out on the ocean.
Setting off from Portimão or Vilamoura, the crew of your chosen boat will take you to some of the Algarve’s most well preserved secret beaches.
You’ll be presented with the same opportunity in the islands. From the marinas in Ponta Delgada on the Azorean island of São Miguel, and Funchal in the archipelago of Madeira, charter companies will take you to pristine coastlines, hidden away from the main tourist areas.
