Algarve

Book a cheap holiday to Portimão with Best4Travel! The largest city in the west of Algarve, Portimão is the calmer, more traditional neighbour of Praia da Rocha.


Sitting on the bank of the Arade River, Portimão was once one of the key fishing towns in Portugal. The influence of this industry can still be felt in everyday life here, whether you’re walking the length of Portimão’s wonderful promenade, or sampling the best of Portuguese cuisine in a local café or restaurant. Portimão also serves as a peaceful retreat for families or others who prefer to stay away from the more touristy areas in the Algarve.


Thanks to the close relationship we share with our hoteliers, we here at Best4Travel have a vast array of exclusive special offers, to suit any budget or occasion, for the top hotels and resorts in Portimão.


For more information on Portimão, or for a tailored quotation on any of the hotels and resorts in the area which are featured on Best4Travel.ie , please drop into any one of our stores nationwide, or call one of our expert travel agents today at our Irish call centre FREE on 1800 814 000.


Beaches
