If you have been enjoying cruising along the Spanish coast, why not go further and enjoy the Algarve. If you head west from Spain there are plenty of interesting ports, rivers and anchorages to visit. The Algarve may just grab you to the point that you do not want to leave. You are warned :-)
I am often asked by people for advice on importing a boat from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). My answer is always to exercise caution because what at first may seem to be a very cheap boat may well become an expensive nightmare.
Taking your boat into the Algarve warm southern coast is a very attractive option - sunshine, easy cruising and sandy beaches all close to a range of safe and secure marinas, what more could you ask for? Everyone has heard of the Algarve, the south coast of Portugal, as a holiday destination, but the region has so much more to offer if you have a boat.
Nowadays, sailing is not an experience that is exclusive to the very rich or the very experienced sea-faring individual. Anyone can indeed enjoy a sailing holiday. Whether you are single, married, have a family, or just want to enjoy the holiday with a group of friends; a sailing holiday may just be the one experience that you can enjoy at least once in your lifetime.
