Surfers restricted

As the number of surf schools on beaches in the western Algarve, especially in the Vicentina coastline, continues to rise, Maritime Police have imposed time limits for the use of beaches by each school.

The new rule, which the police say will help ensure the safety of swimmers during this bathing season, will limit each surf class to a maximum of two hours.
