Between August 14 and 20, the beaches will host "Albufeira This is the Beach", a cycle of shows starring synchronised airplanes, to the sound of some of the best Portuguese bands.

"This is our way of giving gifts to those who have chosen the region to spend their holidays", explains José Carlos Rolo, Mayor of Albufeira. "Respecting the rules, these will be special artistic moments, carried out without any warning, to avoid gatherings, with the sole purpose of paying homage and leaving a message of confidence to holidaymakers on Albufeira's beaches", he said.

This cycle of shows culminates on August 20, "Albufeira City Day", where "Albufeira This is the Beach" intersects with the online festival "Albufeira Summer Live", where the artists China, Nuno Lopes and The Gift perform.
