The beaches of the Algarve will officially reopen to the public tomorrow, 6 June.

A statement from the Algarve Tourism Board states that the beaches are “ready to receive tourists and residents, according to the requirements defined by the Portuguese Environment Agency (APA)”.

João Fernandes, President of the Algarve Tourism Board said: “the region is prepared to receive, as always, tourists and visitors on its beaches and it will be the duty of all of us, from tour operators to citizens, to follow the rules in place and to take individual protection measures including social distancing”.

The official points out that “awards such as the Blue Flag are proof of the success of the destination's bet on an increasingly safe, environmentally sustainable and accessible sun and sea tourism destination. These distinctions gain even more relevance in this phase of deconfinement in which the Portuguese can already enjoy the beaches again as a place of leisure and, above all, of well-being for the body and mind”.

To see all the rules that are in place for beaches this season visit the APA website or alternatively download the InfoPraia app from the Google Play store or from the Apple store


Is there any website where I can find information on what "countries" the Portuguese authorities will give access to visit Portugal?
