The swimming season at Algarve Beach has been extended.
The Algarve beach franchise was officially closed on Wednesday September 30 , but to try to recover some of the losses caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, beach companies will take sunbeds and lifeguards for at least another two weeks.
This is because the temperature of about 30 degrees continues to attract swimmers to the beach.
The Algarve is the southernmost region of continental Portugal. It has an area of 4,997 km2 with 451,006 permanent inhabitants, and incorporates 16 municipalities.
The region has its administrative centre in the city of Faro, where both the region’s international airport and public university, the University of Algarve, are located. The region coincides with Faro District.
Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve’s summer economy. Production of food, which includes fish and other seafood, different types of fruit such as oranges, figs, plums, carob beans, and almonds, are also economically important in the region.
