In an attempt to woo British boat lovers, Portimão’s Tourism Association (ATP) took part in the Southampton Boat Show 2015 which was held between September 11 and 20.
In a press release, the ATP said it hopes to “strengthen its position in the British market and increase Portimão’s popularity as a nautical destination”.
Portimão Marina thus took centre stage as the town’s main boat-related asset.
Says the association, the marina is sought as an “official base by teams from all over the world, due to its convenient location, and quality and diversity of tourism on offer”.
On a closing note, the association said it sets out to promote “more than just the town’s beaches”, focusing instead on other sectors of the local tourism.
