A rock fall at Careanos beach in Portimao on Tuesday, was the 18th collapse along that part of the Algarve coast since the bad weather began, the Portuguese Environment Agency said.

Algarve cliff collapses climb to 18

 

The agency said that it would be continuing with its “routine observation and records” of the cliffs until May to define if any mechanical intervention was needed to stabilise the zones if there was a high risk of further rock falls, before the beach season got underway.

 

The APA said that people should remember that the cliffs in the Algarve are “naturally unstable” and they should not stay at the top or bottom of them, particularly when the weather is bad.

 

The latest rock fall was on Tuesday when a 10-metre-high cliff collapsed at Careanos beach, but there were no victims the local harbour master told Lusa.
