A strong holiday season was widely predicted for Portugal’s Algarve this year, and the predictions were correct, with the destination already set to smash records as the peak of the season gets underway. A particularly busy Algarve holiday season was predicted by many this year. One of the key reasons for this is a dramatic drop in interest for destinations including Turkey, Tunisia and Egypt, where the risk of terrorist activity is currently high.
A new Portugal beer festival, which attracted tens of thousands of people last year, will be repeated in Faro for the second time in July. If you think about beer in Portugal, chance are that the brands that spring to mind are Super Bock and Sagres. The latter is reasonably ubiquitous and well known across the UK, as well as in Portugal.
