This is recognized by the highest number of “Blue Flags” given to beaches in one area as well as the number of earned official “Golden Beach Seals” (Quercus).
From little secluded places surrounded by walls of rock to long stretches of sandy beach, we can enjoy them all, whether it be calmly and privately or with plenty of fun and action. Water sports are available on most beaches, whether it be sailing, windsurfing and diving, or even motorized water sports.
The Algarve coast and its gorgeous climate attract visitors all year round, but supporting facilities like umbrella rental, water sports, medical emergencies, beach restaurants and bars run between April and October. It is also during this period that the seashore is properly watched and it’s safe to swim and enjoy it to the fullest.
