Portugal’s Alentejo Coast remains a well-kept secret here in the UK but remains the spot where the Portuguese choose to spend their holidays, as opposed to the Algarve’s more crowded shoreline. It remains one of Western’s Europe’s most unpopulated regions, ensuring plenty of space for the perfect family getaway.

Here, the Atlantic waters have sculpted a dramatic coastline where sheer cliff-faces contrast with sweeping beaches of white sand. It’s a timeless and unspoilt place, with perfect waves for surfing. You will be able to try this for yourself, along with a multitude of other family activities, from abseiling and zip-wiring to cycling and canoeing. We operate a flexible activity scheme which lets you choose as many or as few as you wish.

The town of Milfontes is popular with Lisbon’s residents who travel there in summer to escape oppressive city heat and to enjoy delicious local cuisine. The region is surrounded by gently undulating hills, with the Mira, cleanest of all European rivers, running close by. Added to this are the exceptional surf beaches, making the perfect activity playground for a family adventure holiday. The town itself is charmingly picturesque and home to an impressive 16th century stone castle – built as a fortress to protect the town from marauding pirates.

Our local team receives outstanding feedback each year and they will ensure that you get to experience this region at its best and enjoy some wonderful experiences!

Most of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate. Minimum numbers are detailed on each holiday page and are always approximate. Group sizes for tailor-made holidays will vary for each of the activities. For private departures, you may also be joined by other guests during the activities unless you have discussed specific private activities with us.

In the unlikely event that your chosen date has not reached the required minimum numbers nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you and discuss the various options available to you. We will always do all we can to operate a holiday and in some cases, we may be able to operate the holiday by combining your itinerary with that of other guests for some activities (this may mean that the maximum group size is increased but this will be discussed in full with you).

If we are unable to operate the holiday then you will be offered the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday or date (subject to availability). If the alternative is more expensive you will be asked to pay the difference, if it is cheaper then you will be reimbursed.

Traveller Reviews

  • Ricardo and team were fantastic. 26 August 2017 by The Smithwell Family

    Everything they did was spot on. Our favourite activity was the surf lesson with a good instructor, gorgeous beach and good waves. We thought all the activities were really good and set at the right level for families. Like many of your previous customers, I would just like to repeat how great Ricardo and his team were. They were friendly, courteous, helpful, laid back. They are always available

    in the background but don't dominate the group. The lunches were delicious and Ricardo sources them from local restaurants and, on one day, his mum's friend. It felt that we were supporting the local economy rather than big business.

  • Portugal activity holiday 12 August 2017 by The Walker Family

    The activities were superbly organised, equipped and led by your colleagues (and please pass on our thanks to Ricardo, Rafael, Filipe, Diogo and the rest of the team). I enjoyed the kayaking & cycling challenge (Thursday). I'm glad to have had the chance to try surfing but didn't show much aptitude for it; fortunately, the younger Walkers took to it more easily. When pushed, they were

    undecided whether the surfing or the lagoon activity day (Tuesday) was their favourite. I think we were all glad we checked our fears and abseiled down a 40-metre rock-face on Friday. I booked in January and spent six months looking forward to the holiday so the risk of anticlimax was high but we all loved it.

  • The most amazing holiday with memories to treasure 05 August 2017 by The Helm Family

    We have just returned from the best holiday ever. As a mother of 2 very active boys, my intention was to book a holiday that they would adore and that I would like/endure. However, it appeared that I enjoyed the holiday as much as everyone! The activities aren't for the faint-hearted but the sense of achievement, team spirit and pride is second to none. Seeing your children delighted every

    moment with each new activity surrounded by experienced and lovely guides is a sight to behold forever. We were blessed with a truly amazing group of game families. No computer screens, no petty arguments just good family, back to nature, high adrenaline fun. The saying goes that 'you are only as happy as your most unhappy child'; with this said myself and my husband were as happy as could be from DAY 1. Thank you for organising!

  • Fab holiday enjoyed by all 13 August 2016 by The Baguley Family

    The positive and engaging attitude displayed by all reps was first class. They clearly care about what they do and enjoy their jobs. Most enjoyable activity: Abseiling for feeling confident when facing a daunting task!! Least enjoyable: Nothing. Fab holiday enjoyed by all and great to be with similar families.

  • Surf's up on the Alentejo Coast 06 August 2016 by The Barber Family

    We could not fault the arrangements and planning of activities. The lagoon day was very special and we felt privileged to be able to have such a fabulous time in this secret place.

  • Holiday was excellent 06 August 2016 by The Webb Family

    The holiday was excellent. The activity hosts were professional and the organisation and execution of the activities were outstanding. All activities were enjoyed by one or more members of the family. There was not an activity that was not enjoyable. There were some that were more difficult than others to master. Surfing, for example, is very enjoyable but will take significant practice to master.

  • Great for kids 23 July 2016 by Jill Smith and family

    We had a large group - great for kids- they all got on so well, the adults did too & the activities brought out the kids in us. Activities paced well. Ricardo had things well planned & a good team & was very knowledgeable & helpful ability to tailor the holiday was fantastic so we had an activity holiday but also another restful week in lovely accommodation in a beautiful part of

  • Everything was enjoyable 09 July 2016 by Claire, John & Charlotte

    The activity team were the nicest guys you can wish to meet. Their pride and knowledge of the local area were excellent and inspiring. Their encouragement during the activities was also what made the holiday. Everything was enjoyable.

  • Each day offered something exciting. 15 August 2015 by Verity Bowcock

    Ricardo and his team were very good - efficient/well organised/friendly We felt that Ricardo's local knowledge of the area meant we got to go to places we would not have found ourselves. The standard of the accommodation was much better than I had expected at Duna Parque and the staff lovely. The only issue being that if we wanted to have a cooked breakfast we had to walk to HS Milfontes every

  • Thank you to Activities Abroad for enabling us to have a fantastic holiday in Portugal 09 August 2009 by Jo Green

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Activities Abroad for enabling us to have a fantastic holiday in Portugal. The team out there - Ricardo, Pedro, Miguel and Phillipe - were absolutely brilliant. They were friendly, great fun, kind, helpful and professional - I could go on and on! Their enthusiasm, knowledge and love of the surrounding area ensured that we saw the best parts of the area and

    the activities were just fantastic for the kids and adults alike. They seemed to enjoy all that they did and nothing was a chore - even taking us all to our 2nd week accommodation, which was not a problem in the slightest. We definitely would recommend this holiday to anyone who wants something a little different. We also would like to be sent details of next year’s holidays with Activities Abroad so as we can plan our next adventure ASAP!
