Best Honeymoon Destinations In Portugal

Updated 9 March 2020 | by Lara McComish

Reminisce about your big day on a romantic honeymoon in picture-perfect Portugal. 


1. Sintra

Soak in the sights from the hilltop town of Sintra. Indulge in UNESCO castles, uncrowded beaches and birds-eye views so magical, they could give your recent fairytale wedding a run for its money.


2. Cascais

Cascais, Portugal

Cascais is a dreamy choice for newlyweds that enjoy cosmopolitan pleasures. Settled by the sea, you and your beau will enjoy lazy days at the beach, walks around the marina and some of the finest seafood in Portugal. A nod to its history as a fishing town.


3. Albufeira

Albufeira, Portugal

Start your married lives together with a honeymoon in Albufeira. Be charmed by more than 100 miles of beaches a short jaunt away from the Moorish, cobblestoned Old Town. Stop for a liquid lunch fueled by Algarve wine and lip-smackingly good grilled fish.    


4. Porto

Porto, Portugal

Take in the sweetness of Porto. Sip the local Port, enjoy walks up the banks of the Douro River and ogle at the colourful townhouses. Maybe you and hubby could buy one and move here if you love it enough because heck, you’ve got your whole lives ahead of you both…


5. Madeira

Madeira, Portugal

Consider straying off-the-beaten-track and head out to the island of Madeira for your honeymoon. Stop and smell the exotic flowers that decorate this lush green isle. It’s a wonderful choice for cliff hikes with the most rewarding coastal views off the coast of Africa.
