In other words, according to the most recent figures, August was busier than last year, though still far from a typical August.

Previous month, Portuguese tourists kept hotels viable, according to the Algarve hotel group AHETA, which claims that the national market rose 50% compared to August of last year. Foreign hotel bookings, on the other hand, fell by 58.6%, reflecting significant travel restrictions between Portugal and several of its key markets, such as the United Kingdom.


The area of Portimão/Praia da Rocha was the severely hit, with a 24.6 percent decrease in bookings from August 2019. Even in Faro/Olhão, the area with the smallest loss, occupation levels fell by 11%.
