Top 5 / Europe

In recent years, Portugal has quietly become one of Europe’s top travel destinations. It’s inexpensive compared to some of its neighbors, it’s warm and sunny, and it’s easy to access from most U.S. cities. As a growing wellness destination, here are the country’s top spots for a relaxing vacation.

 

Evora

Farther inland from Portugal’s renowned Atlantic coast is Evora, a historic city with centuries of stories and Roman monuments still intact. Its Acqua Veritas spa is worth the 90-mile trip from Lisbon.

 

Comporta

Located about an hour and a half south of Lisbon, this coastal area is worlds away from Portugal’s bustling city life. Visitors can ride horses, take yoga classes at Comporta Yoga Shala, surf or taste wine among expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

Algarve

The Algarve area in Portugal’s southernmost region has become a hot spot for visitors who want to explore beyond Lisbon and Porto. The region boasts rocky cliffs, wraparound ocean views, golf courses and relaxing spas like Pine Cliffs Resort.

 

Azores Islands

This archipegalo off the coast of Portugal is also an up-and-coming destination for off-the-beaten-path travel. Escape the crowds and indulge in the islands’ lush green landscape, hiking trails and notable spas Mythos and Alkimia.

 

Douro Valley

This region located just outside of Porto in Northern Portugal is known for its port wine production, but the rolling hills and acres of vineyards also set the scene for a relaxing vacation. Book a stay at the Six Senses Douro Valley or Douro Royal Valley Hotel and Spa to get a taste of what the region has to offer.

How to Pack for Unpredictable Weather

It can be difficult to pack when the weather is unpredictable. Only so many things can be packed into a suitcase before it becomes too much. Frequent travelers know this is a problem. Even if the weather isn’t unpredictable in temperature, it can be unpredictable in the sense of not knowing whether a bad storm is coming or not. While it is challenging to pack for these types of trips, it is not impossible for travelers to pack the right objects and clothing for unpredictable weather.

Is Your Sunscreen Killing the Ocean?

Travelers are already savvy about keeping trash out of oceans and focused on our rising shorelines. But according to MarineSafe, sunscreen is one of the biggest and permanent polluters to our oceans. The common sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone and octinoxate are toxic to coral reefs and other marine life. The chemicals are shown to cause coral bleaching that ultimately leaves the coral vulnerable to infection and malnourished. Of course, sunscreen isn’t the only source of pollution in our oceans, but is quickly escalating into a crisis.
