Club Med Da Balaia looks out over the Atlantic Ocean, between red cliffs, white sand, blue skies and green fairways.

On the country’s Atlantic coast, Portugal has some of Europe’s finest beaches, while traditional villages, towns and fishing ports explode with colour.The nation has a history that is closely linked to exploration, and visitors can make their own voyages through a rich and varied landscape. The food is simple and delicious; the people friendly, low-key and laid-back.
With golden beaches, red-roofed cities and rolling vineyards, Portugal is a Mediterranean delight.
Portugal is the perfect destination for family holidays with a mix of Mediterranean inspiration and beachside fun. Wander through rural orange groves, get lost in winding cobblestone streets, explore medieval ruins or simply soak up the sun on golden sands on your all-inclusive holiday.
As Europe’s oldest country, Portugal has an astounding collection of historic monuments, castles and ruins just waiting to be explored. In the North, Porto rises in tiers on the green hillsides, begging to be explored. In the south, the Algarve seduces visitors with its dramatic coastlines, family-friendly beach resorts and scenic golf courses.
Portuguese musical culture is dominated by Fado, an urban folk tradition you’ll hear echoing in streets and bars from Porto to Faro. Portuguese cuisine is full of fresh seafood, aromatic seasonings and delicious pastries. Savour a hearty plate of bacalhau a bras or a sweet little pasteis de nata followed by a glass of port wine or a light, dry vinho verde.

An all-inclusive stay to uncover all that Portugal has to offer
Fancy going back to the roots of the Iberian art de vivre? Staying in Portugal is the ideal place to do so. Dive into the Atlantic, with a fado tune in your ears and a quote from Fernando Pessoa in your mind.
From one region to another, the Portuguese landscapes are distinguished by their diversity. Savour your all-inclusive stay in Portugal, where oceanic landscapes meet Mediterranean colours. In the north, head to Porto, where the impressive amphitheatres of the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, unfold before your eyes. Discover the south as you pass through its protected zones. The South-West Alentejano and Costa Vicentina Nature Park is the ideal setting for an excursion in the great outdoors. From there, travel the length of the shore to Carrapateira, a small, preserved village which has become a hotspot for surfers. The natural abundance in Portugal and the Algarve region makes it a favourite destination for golf fans who sing the praises of the Dem Pedro Golf green, just a few minutes from Club Med Da Balaïa resort.
The Algarve isn’t only known for its golf courses. The region, which enjoys a mild and sunny climate all year round (17°C average temperature in winter), also seduces its visitors with its cultural and natural heritage. Take a stroll through the back-country and the hidden picturesque villages, including Alcoutim on the banks of the Guadiana river. Further to the west, discover Lagos, a bustling seaside town. Continue your all-inclusive stay in Portugal and head for the Ria Formosa, a natural park which is unique in Europe, made up of lagoons and small beaches. Tranquility becomes a way of life…
While a trip to Portugal has to include the countryside and beaches of the Algarve, your first priority should be the capital. From the Jerónimos Monastery, with its Manueline architectural style, to the tower of Belém, ready to face the waves, Lisbon is full of treasures. Grandiose and rooted in legends, these marvels will send the imaginations of children and adults alike into overdrive! And while Fado music has accompanied your trip so far, these Portuguese songs will soon turn into flamenco melodies as you arrive in the Andalusian city of Seville, just 2 hours from Club Med Da Balaïa resort.
