“After the storm, the calm. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Algarve within the next two to three months. The Algarve has been the least affected region of mainland Portugal since the beginning of the pandemic, and the capacity that the country has shown in overcoming this last wave, allows us to look forward confidently to a brighter future”.

 

“We anticipate the first visitors to return will be our own domestic tourists and Spanish visitors, progressively followed by demand from the other European markets including the UK, over the summer months”. 

 

“The proximity markets will be able to see some major events here between mid-April and the beginning of May such as MotoGP, Formula 1 and Portugal Masters Golf Championship. These events will of course follow all the health and safety conditions previously outlined by the General Health Directorate”.

 

 “The Algarve offers so much as a destination from sun and sea (awarded ‘Best Beach Destination in the World in 2020’ at the WTA), golf the country and the region have been voted ‘“Best Golf Destination in the World’ on several occasions, nature tourism, nautical tourism, and an array of options for longer stays and ‘workcations’”.

 

“We expect there will be significantly more tourists in the second half of the year compared to 2020 helped by the fact that we have European flights contracted with the main airlines, two of which Ryanair and EasyJet (opening in June) will actually be based in Faro”.

 

“We can’t wait to welcome back and share our beautiful region with international visitors once more”.
