CABEÇALHO

For the first time, the Algarve has picked up the award for the Best Beach Destination in the World from the 2020 World Travel Awards.

Following being given the distinction at a European level, the Algarve has beaten off competition from around the world to be crowned the best beach destination, coming ahead of 18 other nominees which included destinations in the Maldives, Thailand, Jamaica, Mexico and the USA.


The award is being considered as a remarkable achievement, which takes on an even greater relevance in a year which has been particularly challenging for the travel industry, leading to destinations having to provide new solutions to encourage tourism while maintaining safety and security.


“Receiving this double distinction is, this year, more important than ever, since, as soon as the confidence levels for travel begin to increase, tourists will want to choose the destinations that offer the best guarantees”, said João Fernandes, president of Turismo do Algarve.
