Bathing season 2009

Concessions along the Algarve’s beaches will be allowed to open outside of the normal bathing season, which is between June 1 and September 30, this year.

The decision was made at a meeting between the Administração da Região Hidrográfica do Algarve (ARH), the region’s hydrographical administration, and other organisations in December.

Bars, restaurants and other facilities that want to open outside of the normal bathing season should present their proposal to the relevant port authority.

This must include the proposed opening dates as well as other information such as assistance for swimmers, rubbish collection and access to a first aid post, among others.
