If you're ready for one of the world's top destinations and more beaches than you can imagine, grab your swimsuit and suitcase!
 
 
The days to soak up sand and sea are finally arriving. With them big decisions need to be made such as where to invest your summer time and what beach you'll choose to recharge your mind, body and soul. If you're thinking you need a good selection of beaches to choose from because, who knows, you may get bored with just 1 or 2...then Portugal might just be for you. 

But how many beaches does one really need to be happy? 20, 50, 100, 500? If you get dizzy at 30 flavours of ice cream - prepare yourself. This year the Portuguese Maritime Authority has approved an 'Additional 99' beaches safe for swimming, taking Portugal's beach total to - 640!  Yes, 6.4.0...! 

Before scrambling to find and pack your swimsuit, you might also want to know this kind of beach access comes with considerable responsibility and the authorities have certified an additional 504 lifeguards to help keep you and nautical venturers safe

Now you're likely wondering 'how on Earth do I choose?' The best answer is if you've got 2 years plus to visit each one then you don't have to! If not, then it's not easy! To help you dip your toe into these vast waters we've picked 5 lovely choices from the heart of Portugal's beach capital - The Algarve. We've also selected nearby properties in case you suffer from - ocean devotion - and want more continued access than a mere weekend getaway.

We are here to help not only find you the best beaches, but a property to make the life in the sun you want a reality. First step...find yourself a lovely property!
