5 reasons to choose Algarve as DMC destination
The Algarve region, with its 300 sunny days a year, has some of the best beaches in Europe, as well as estuaries, mountains and spectacular natural landscapes. But not everything is nature in Algarve, since it is also a very active area receiving thousands of congresses and events a year. For these and many other reasons, the Algarve is the most visited area in Portugal.
You only need 5 reasons to choose Algarve for your incentive travel:
Modern tourist infrastructures: Due to the large number of tourists it receives, Algarve has a very wide variety of 4 and 5 star hotels ideal for all the needs of business or incentive tourists. The most reputable international chains in the sector have decided to be located in this area of the Atlantic, where tourism is the main economic factor.
Zone of natural contrasts: The great natural wealth of the southernmost area of Portugal is undeniable. In a few kilometers you can find cities totally focused on sun and beach tourism, counteracting with natural landscapes where we can find rural areas where they live totally outside the hustle and bustle of the coast.
Good connections: Algarve has Faro airport, with direct connections to all European capitals. Algarve is only 2 hours from the Lisbon airport, a fact that makes many of the visitors arrive from the Portuguese capital since international connections are more common and economical. There are also very good connections by land from Spain.
- Sea vibrations: The beaches of the Algarve coast are among the most popular on the Atlantic coast. Cliffs with stunning views, wild landscapes and long sandy beaches a few kilometers from the Portuguese capital. Each beach with its great natural beauty, clear sand, crystal clear waters, rocky or sandy elements that extend several kilometers, all make Algarve considered a Portuguese paradise.
Atlantic Gastronomy: It may be unknown to many that the Algarve has several Michelin-starred restaurants, but it is not surprising; Algarve cuisine is famous for its excellent and fresh seafood. Try the famous Cataplana is something that every visitor should do in the coastal restaurants of the area.
