More about Portugal

The capital of Faro is a prime holiday spot in itself, with its miles of sweeping sands – a mecca for sunbathers, sandcastle builders and windsurfers alike. If you're flying into Faro on route to somewhere else, it's well worth taking a day out to explore its historic old town, grand theatres, pretty plazas and green spaces. The seaside city of Albufeira manages to combine the cobbled streets, traditional restaurants and authentic shops of the old town with the modern, rainbow-coloured builds of the marina, the bustling nightlife of the San Joao strip and, not one but two, beautiful beaches.

Another old meets new Portuguese city, Lagos, boasts a collection of golden sand beaches plus plenty of chance for outdoor adventures and partying. Whether you fancy Portugal for its glorious beaches, or you're in it for the historic city sights, holidays here always deliver. Book your cheap flights to Portugal with Thomascook Airlines and embrace the sunny delights of this Mediterranean gem.
