"Paradise" can be different for everyone. Some travelers may describe it as a place filled with palm trees, saltwater, and lounge chairs. Others might see it as a snowy destination in the mountains, complete with cozy bonfires and s'mores. For you, it's a spot across the pond with colorful castles, picturesque views, and cozy coves. Are you looking for some Instagram captions for Portugal? I bet you are, and that's why I've gathered up a bunch of cute phrases that'll capture the essence of Lagos, Algarve, Lisbon, and Sintra.
But before we get into them, I'd like to review your packing list for your trip. If there's one thing I've learned from traveling the world, it's that you don't need nearly as much as you think you do. You don't need a third pair of jeans or even a bottle of shampoo, because it will probably be provided at your accommodations or can be picked up at a store down the road.
Spoiler alert: Making the best memories in paradise doesn't require a big suitcase either. Do yourself a favor and grab a carry-on and fill it with only the essentials. Leave behind the shoes that are on your bed in a "maybe" pile, because you likely won't wear them, and use the leftover space for souvenirs, postcards, and shells you collect on the dreamy beaches of Portugal.
The less stuff you have to lug around the cobblestone streets, the more you can focus on your experiences, excursions, and Instagram-worthy lunches in this one-of-a-kind country. You can effortlessly follow your heart through the hallways of Pena Palace and the tropical paths in the Azores. Not to mention, you can also spend time prepping and sharing pictures on social media instead of rearranging your clothes. Here are 28 captions that would be perfect for those snaps of paradise.
