Europe Best Beach is Now Just Three Hours from the UK!

A beach that’s just a three-hour flight from the UK has been named one of the best in Europe.

Oct.11 : The Algarve in southern Portugal, typically known for its appeal to golfers and retirees, has just clinched the title of ‘Europe’s leading beach destination’ at the 2023 World Travel Awards. This accolade signifies a shift in its popularity as it’s rapidly becoming a hotspot for travelers of all ages.

What’s remarkable is that the Algarve has secured this award for the tenth consecutive time, making it the unparalleled champion in this category, with no other destination having achieved this feat.

Among the top shortlisted beach destinations were Cannes, France; Corfu, Greece; Costa Navarino, Greece; Mallorca, Spain; Marbella, Spain; Porto Santo Island, Madeira, and Sardinia, Italy.

The sunny Algarve is blessed with over 100 picturesque beaches and offers approximately 200 km of stunning coastline. Moreover, it boasts 88 Blue Flag beaches, signifying some of the cleanest and most pristine shores in Europe.

This means you can relish your beach days without the worry of encountering litter on the sand or murky waters. The Algarve’s diverse range of beaches caters to various preferences, from long sandy beaches protected by golden cliffs to small bays tucked between rocks and the calm waters of the east coast, perfect for families. Surfers can also find paradise on the west coast beaches of Amado, Bordeira, and Monte Clerigo, known for their scenic beauty and uncrowded waves. Furthermore, the region is dotted with famous beach resort towns like Albufeira, Lagos, and Vilamoura, each offering their unique charm and fantastic beaches.

For those looking for a coastline closer to home, Achmelvich in the Scottish Highlands was previously recognized as one of the world’s best beaches.

In May, the world’s top 50 beaches, curated by Banana Boat, were unveiled, and they include some of the most breathtaking shorelines across the globe.
