With its mild climate, 3000 hours of sunshine per year and 850kms of splendid beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is an accessible year round sunny destination. The Portuguese capital is a cool, cosmopolitan and creative city, marrying the historic with the modern, the traditional with the cutting edge. Yet, beyond the city, Portugal offers Europe's sunniest spot - a unique jewel where the finest beaches and weather of the continent meet historic Portugal. This destination located at the tip of Europe with the vast ocean of the Atlantic as its southern and western border also gives this region possibly the most unpolluted climate on the European continent.
