Why the British keep flooding Portugal

Since the warm season is quick to come to the Portuguese shore in the Algarve, holidaymakers all around the world are already making preparations for their coming vacations. But there are some of them who have taken a particular liking to the country of “Fado” and “azulejos”. Let’s see why he British keep flooding Portugal!

We know that the UK remains one of the most powerful European states, so the living conditions here are still pretty decent. So it’s only logical that the British be some of the greatest travelers around the world. It just so happens that one of their favorite European destinations is Portugal.

According to TravelZoo, 30% of Britons rank Portugal as their number one choice of a holiday destination. Why?

Well, we do have to admit the English have been known to be a bit stingy. So a low cost option will always be a top priority for them. The Portuguese seaside is one of the cheapest in the world, without compromising the quality of the services, the beaches and lodgings facilities.

Also, the British love Golf. Well, you’ve guessed it: the Algarve is probably the best golf destination in Europe, definitely one of the best in the world. There are also lots of services revolving around the golf “industry”, if we can call it such. You can hire golf clubs in Faro Airport, book an Algarve golf transfer or rent a car in Lagos to travel not only to the golf courses, but also to all the Algarve destinations of interest.

Some retired British citizens choose to come to Portugal and live the remainder of their lives in the quiet and beauty provided by the Atlantic and its rocky shores. That is also because the price of property here is very affordable. You can have a two bedroom apartment in Albufeira for just a little above 100.000 EUR.

All things considered, the British are smart people!
