Beach lift

An elevator to ease access to Penedo beach near Albufeira was inaugurated on May 20.

Albufeira Câmara President Desidério Silva and Secretary of State for Tourism Bernardo Trindade, among other officials, were present for the ceremony.

On the other end of the bay, there are also two new escalators for residents and visitors to gain easy access to Pescadores beach.

Other coastal works that have been completed in Albufeira before the official start of the bathing season include the reinforcement of the cliffs to avoid rock falls.
