Start planning your honeymoon in Portugal

A honeymoon in Portugal is the perfect choice for newlyweds looking for a mix of scenery, cuisine, and history. From the Alentejo region's rolling hills lined with olive groves, to the Algarve's golden beaches, Portugal offers something new wherever you go. Spend your days exploring a medieval castle, drinking in the sun, or horseback riding through the hills, and the evenings feasting on local delicacies or listening to fado music.

What makes Portugal a great honeymoon destination?

Away from the vacation hotspots of Lisbon and the Algarve, Portugal offers wide open spaces to enjoy for just the two of you. Stroll along a beach under the moonlight, or reserve a table at the best seafood place in town for a meal as the sun sets over the ocean. The options for a Portugal honeymoon are vast, so use Evaneos' expertise and connections with local English-speaking agencies to find your ideal romantic getaway.

  • Travel back in time at Pena Palace

Sintra's colorful, exuberant Pena Palace sits high in the mountains close to Lisbon. After you've explored the former royal quarters inside, head outside for some spectacular honeymoon selfies overlooking some of Portugal's most stunning views.

  • Escape the crowds at Praia do Carvalho

During peak vacation season the Algarve's beaches are very popular, but the small cove at Praia do Carvalho is a quieter alternative. Follow the staircase down onto the golden sand and spend the day relaxing, swimming, or reading. There's even a small bar carved into the rock face for those essential vacation cocktails.

  • Catch a traditional fado show

Fado is an atmospheric, melancholic, and passionately expressive form of traditional music, packed with romance and longing. The best musicians of the genre are found in bars and clubs in the Bairro Alto area of Lisbon.

  • Wine tours in Porto

Porto gives its name to the famous fortified port wine, so why not take a trip around the region's vineyards? Find out how the grapes are grown, then processed into the nation's favorite beverage. Don't pass up a chance to sample the finished product.

  • Relax on a cruise along the Douro

The Douro river is one of the best honeymoon spots in Portugal, and what could be better than cruising along the river with your spouse? Relax and enjoy the sights that pass you by, including charming villages and vineyard-filled hills.

Tips for planning a honeymoon in Portugal

Portugal has far more to offer than its beaches and cities, and you'll want to spend at least a week to truly enjoy yourselves here. Renting a car is perhaps the best way to make the most of the countryside. The climate is warm year-round, but spring is perhaps the most romantic and colorful season.
