Tourists from Britain are highly interested to spend holidays in Portugal


British travellers are showing immaculate interest in spending their holidays in Portugal, as searches for such spots have surged by over 25 per cent in the last week.

According to a study from Rightmove, searches for Portugal tourism spots for the summer season have increased by 24 per cent in the last year and by over 25 per cent in the recent week.


As the travel restrictions have been facilitated for British travellers, the demand for travel to Portugal is quickly recovering. The country uses electronic passport gates at the airport, making the Iberic country the most popular summer destination for Brits.

The same source shows that Porto Santo is now the most searched holiday spot in Portugal, followed by Comporta in south Lisbon and Vila Real de Santo Antonio in Algarve.

Portugal has become the first EU country to allow Britons fast-tracked entry to speed up the passport control process.

In addition, the country is known for its beaches – 431 beaches and marinas obtained blue flags for ecotourism in 2022, which 32 more spots than it did in the previous year.

As the source reveals, so far this year, 102 municipalities have applied for blue flags for nearly 400 beaches, with Vila Verde, Tabua, and Alandroal using for the first time and Cascais and Marinha Grande making a comeback to the Blue Flag program.

The beaches in Portugal with blue flags include the following North (82), Centre (50), Alentejo (40), Algarve (86), Tejo (77), Azores (42) and Madeira (16).


As per marinas, the Lajes do Pico Nautical Recreation Centre, the Machico Recreational Port and the Nautical Recreation Centre in Velas have been awarded a Blue Flag for the first time. Still, ecotourism vessels such as boats have scored the highest increases for Blue Flags granted this year.
