As one of the biggest tourist countries, Portugal attracts many tourists each year (12.8 million in 2006). By creating more jobs, driving exports and generating huge revenues, tourism is a supportive sector of the Portugal’s economy. 2010 is another successful year for Portugal’s tourism.
In the year 2010, the country was visited by 14 million tourists (more than the Portugal’s population 10.6 million), tourism output was EUR 17.2 billion contributing about 10% of the total Gross Domestic Product, and the tourism industry employed nearly 10% of the country’s workforce.
Looking out to the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal features many breathtakingly beautiful tourist areas, including Greater Lisbon, Algarve, Greater Porto, Cascais, Cabo da Roca and more. Cascais, the Portuguese Costa Del Sol, is a beautiful coastal town with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
As an international city, Cascais has successfully hosted many world sports events including 2007 ISAF Sailing World Championships. Cabo da Roca is another must-see place defined in the poet Luís de Camões as the place “where the land ends and the sea begins” (Portuguese: “Onde a terra acaba e o mar começa”). Spectacular 320-foot sea cliffs are the most attractive resorts there.
As tourism is playing an increasingly important role in Portugal’s economy, the Portugal’s government pays ever more attention to this sector. To attract more foreign visitors and prolong their stay in Portugal, a localized travel guide with information on tourist spots, hotels, restaurants, shops and traffic map is a must-have.
