Portimao is a port city on the southern coast of Portugal and offers easy access to some of the country’s best beaches. Follow the Arade River south of the city center to reach the Marina de Portimao and iconic Praia da Rocha, Portimao’s most popular beach and resort destination. West of Praia da Rocha lies a variety of equally stunning beaches, including Praia do Vau, Praia dos Três Castelos, and Praia João de Arens. Other highlights of this vibrant coastal city include Museu de Portimão, which features exhibits on the city’s past reliance on the fishing and canning industries, the Mercado Municipal, Portimao’s central marketplace, and the Fortaleza de Santa Catarina, which houses the remnants of an historic fort.
