There are few disabled-friendly beach holidays to rival those you can enjoy in Portugal’s Algarve, with its blessed warm weather that lasts the whole year round and its golden swathes of sandy coastline. 

Portuguese scenery is tranquillity incarnated.  The calm, temperate ocean offers visitors the chance to bathe and swim while the view from the coast of the close-by near-deserted islands is both soothing and beautiful.  Portugal’s mountains are a commanding yet calming presence, standing as a towering, benevolent backdrop to the cities and towns that blanket the landscape.

The Algarve retains many of its traditions and architecture from centuries past, making it a great accessible getaway for history buffs who also adore the sun.  The country’s architecture runs from pre-Roman times through a grand range of styles that include Roman, Gothic, and Renaissance all the way to modern times. 

Traditional local food is often reasonably priced and quite exquisite.  Although meat is of course available, many restaurants and bars favour serving seafood, with seafood tapas being a speciality.  Seafood and fish are the most common ingredients in Portuguese cuisine, and are often joined by vegetables and fruit made sublime by the perpetual sun.

Transfer time from the airport is approximately 45 minutes.
