Alentejo Coast family activity holiday, Portugal

This Alentejo Coast family activity holiday in Portugal takes place in a region that is very much off the tourist circuit, although it is a favourite with Portuguese families.

Not surprisingly, many of our family activities are water-based with the Atlantic waves, magnificent beaches and dramatic cliffs all waiting to be enjoyed. Although this is a small group tour, you can choose as ...Read more >
