Frequently Asked Questions

?Is the Algarve safe

The Algarve has long been seen as a safe destination and a tremendous amount of work goes into trying to keep it that way, this is certainly the case with crime which, despite a nominal increase in 2019, has decreased by over 20% in the last 10 years – violent crime even more so

In terms of fires, there is an inherent risk in many hot and dry countries, but the fact is that last year the number of fires decreased by over 40%, there is also a greater acknowledgement of the importance of sound and effective communication for tourists concerning rural fire awareness and prevention in languages they can understand

Concerning Covid-19 – The laws and strategies that the Portuguese government put into place at the early stages have served the country well, there was clarity and the introduction of the State of Emergency, which included laws to ensure compliance
