With its beautiful scenery, golden beaches, superb wine and laid back atmosphere, Portugal offers a lovely setting for a romantic honeymoon. Off the beaten track you'll find tranquil villages and quiet beaches away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centres. Without a doubt the most romantic part of Portugal are the islands of the Azores. With fine weather and warm waters all year round and plenty to do, from romantic walks through stunning mountain scenery to whale watching and scuba diving with dolphins. Although flights and hotels may be more expensive than mainland Portugal, food, drink and travel on the island are relatively inexpensive. A cheaper alternative for a honeymoon in Portugal would be the Algarve, Lisbon or Douro Valley areas.
