Albufeira leads with the most "gold" beachs

Albufeira is the council with the most “gold” beaches for their “excellent” water quality. The distinction is awarded every year by environmental association Quercus to beaches with a water quality that meets high standards. Albufeira registered 19, while the Algarve scooped 88 out of a national total of 355.
Compared to 2013, Portugal has 19 ‘new’ gold beaches this year.
