The Algarve’s beaches will be highlighted throughout the first four months of 2012 on the regional tourism office blog in preparation for the ‘7 Wonders – Beaches of Portugal’ competition.
This new initiative from the Algarve Tourist Board (ERTA) called “the 1001 beaches of the Algarve” will start on 2 January and aims to raise awareness about the region’s natural heritage.
Daily posts in the blog.turismodoalgarve.pt will describe all of the region’s beaches, from the east to the west, including the Ria Formosa and Vicentina natural parks.
The idea is to “promote the region’s main tourist product outside of its normal season. This is a fantastic opportunity to talk about beaches in the winter,” said António Pina, President of the ERTA.
This initiative is also open to the public, who are encouraged to share their stories and photos of the region’s beaches by sending an email to blog@turismodo algarve.com, with a selection being published on the blog at the end of each week.
The project also aims to promote the beaches to the public who will vote for the “7 Wonders – Beaches of Portugal”, a competition that will elect the best beaches in Portugal in various categories.
