5 reasons to visit the Algarve in 2023
The rush for summer bookings is in full swing, with the Algarve on many tourists' summer getaway destinations lists!
Travel has evolved tremendously in the last few years. Not only is safety a number one priority, but families are choosing to travel in a larger group for a truly memorable summer holiday.
If your family is still deciding where to soak up some summer sun, SandyBlue wants to share five simple reasons why the Algarve is the only choice for you.
1) Family Friendly - safety is a priority
As mentioned, safety is still a number one priority when it comes to holidays. The Algarve proved that it has the well-being of residents and tourists in mind at all times. The response throughout the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrates this. In particular, the ‘Clean & Safe’ act was an award-winning initiative.
Basically, your safety and happiness are ensured. This is also evident in our property portfolio. From pool fences to easy-access properties, we keep everyone in mind when helping you plan the perfect villa holiday. Once you tell us exactly what you need in a family friendly villa, we will do the rest.
As with all destinations, tourists can take simple steps to ensure a safe and fulfilling stay. When it comes to SandyBlue guests, we will recommend the best travel links, locations and tips to ensure they have all the knowledge they need. With local knowledge comes complete peace of mind!
2) Perfect for digital nomads and remote workers
Thousands of people are taking advantage of a new approach to working. Many companies are seeing the benefits of allowing their staff to work remotely. Increased productivity, happiness and a better work-life balance are just a few of the perks. The Algarve is a place that can definitely supercharge this!
Portugal has a progressive approach to professionals who wish to work remotely, actively encouraging people to visit the country to do so. Due to this, we are seeing many professionals book extended stays with their families. Fitting a work schedule around the summer holidays can be tricky. It means some families will book a week or two. Now, working remotely for two weeks of the stay, followed by two weeks of relaxation and exploration is a popular choice!
3) A busy itinerary = The perfect holiday
The busier your holiday is, the longer it will feel! No summer trip is complete without an itinerary full of activities. Let's just say that the Algarve offers an endless list of fun!
Each activity can cater to a wide range of people, so no one will feel left out. World-famous golf courses, watersports, wine-tasting, delicious restaurants…the list is endless.
4) Sunshine and sea - a match made in heaven
With 300 days of sunshine, the Algarve is a top pick for sun worshippers everywhere. The convenience of being right by the coast means you have access to some of Europe's best beaches. The Algarve did win best beach destination at the World Tourism Awards after all!
The sun and the sea also have positive health benefits. It is known that the sea air and the sun can help people feel more energised - quite handy when you have a full list of activities to get through.
Furthermore, the reduction of stress and anxiety is so important. It also helps the aforementioned remote workers get into a creative head space. So, a beachfront villa is the perfect choice this year!
