Garden of Portugal

Along Portugal's southern Algarve region sits Albufeira, a city boasting 20 beaches for visitors to choose from.
We've included these beaches for you: Praia de Benagil and Praia Gale. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Praia Sao Rafael and Cabanas de Tavira Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Albufeira side-trips: Praia Verde (in Castro Marim), Praia da Marinha (in Caramujeira) and Carvoeiro Boardwalk (in Carvoeiro). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Alvor, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Faro Cathedral, stroll through Falesia Beach, and visit Algarve by Boat.

Porto

Unvanquished City

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Capela das Almas and Largo da Oliveira. The Maritime Museum of Ilhavo and Museu dos Biscainhos will appeal to museum buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Aveiro (Forum Aveiro & Oficina do Doce), Braga (Arco da Porta Nova, Se de Braga, &more) and Guimaraes (Citania de Briteiros & Alberto Sampaio Museum). There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Cockburn’s Port Wine Lodge, contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and sample some tasty brews at Taste Porto Food Tours.

Plan my Porto trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Sagres to Porto by car takes about 6 hours. Other options: do a combination of bus and train; or do a combination of bus and flight. In August, Porto is a bit cooler than Sagres - with highs of 28°C and lows of 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
