Portugal Golf Holidays – Algarve had the best February since 2007

Portimão, Algarve. Algarve had the best February since 2007

Portimão had the biggest growth in the Algarve

The Association of Hotels and Tourism Enterprises of the Algarve (AHETA), with headquarters in Albufeira, reports that the February 2023 occupancy rate for tourist accommodation units in the Algarve was 48.7%, the highest February occupancy rate in the past 16 years.

According to the data released, the occupancy rate for February was 5.4% higher than the same month in 2019 and 2.1% higher than the same month in 2020, the last month before the Covid-19 restrictions.

According to AHETA, the markets that most contributed to the growth witnessed were the national market with +1.4pp, the Dutch market with +0,9pp, and the British market with +0.5pp in comparison to February 2020.

As said by AHETA, the highest gains compared to 2020 were seen in the regions of Portimão (+16.5pp), Monte Gordo (+11.1pp), and Tavira (+7.2pp) in February.

The signs are clear: the Algarve tourism sector is bouncing back from the economic crisis brought by the Covid-19 pandemic. After a tough period of two years, the Algarve is recovering well, with a good start in 2023, but there is a long way to go in order to make a full recovery.

The Algarve has some of the best golf courses in Europe, like Monte Rei (considered the best in Portugal), Palmares, and Dom Pedro Old, all of them well ranked in Europe’s top 100 golf courses.
