Land reshuffle creates new beach for Portugal, in Algarve

An alteration to the Coastal Plan between Vilamoura and Vila Real de Santo António has created a new, officially-recognised beach for the Algarve, which is also Portugal’s newest beach.

As such the stretch of coast will have lifeguards, sun beds, and sea-fun outfitters as well as many other services official beaches must provide to beach-goers.
Portugal’s newest beach joins others along the three-kilometre strip of coast that fronts the municipality of Castro Marim.

The designation of the new beach in that municipality was technically due to a “simplified change to the Vilamoura-Vila Real de Santo António Coastal Plan (POCC)”, brought about by a resolution of the Council of Ministers, which led to the Praia de Alagoa/Altura Beach Unit (UB1) being officially designated.
Previously the area was locally known as Praia das Primas.
