Algarve blue flag beachesIn the Algarve, there is a new beach to join the list, Beliche, in Vila do Bispo coastline, but there is a way out, as the region loses its unique river beach, the Pego Fundo, Alcoutim, this year does not enter the list of awarded Blue Flag.

The beaches of Alemães (Albufeira), Ferragudo (Lagoa) and Tonel (Vila do Bispo) return to be awarded, after being absent last year.

The four marinas in Algarve - Albufeira, Lagos, Portimão and Vilamoura - all receive the reward of the environmental quality of its waters.

Nationally, the Blue Flag will be flown this year 299 beaches - 283 coastal and 16 inland - and 15 marinas. These figures reflect a decrease compared to last year, when the ABAE awarded the quality mark of honor to 315 beaches - 280 coastal and 18 inland - and 17 marinas.
