3) Algarve, Portugal
Boasting an annual 300 days of sunshine and low cost of living, what’s not to love about Algarve? Europeans and Americans alike are flocking here for the picturesque shores and reasonable cost of living. Depending on the size, an apartment can be found between $400-$600. Even though Portugal is part of Europe, the cost of groceries, food, drink, and rent don’t reflect this. A nice meal out is under $10 and beer and wine is only a couple of bucks a glass. Owning a car and purchasing gas might be more expensive compared to everything else, but Portugal has efficient and cheap public transportation. Another perk about Algarve is the amount of free and cheap activities. All the museums, castles, and small theaters are under $5 on average. All the beautiful natural scenery, beaches, and walking trails are accessible at no charge.
