Algarve has ‘the most sun in Europe’

sunnyThe Algarve region has been awarded the title of ‘European Champion of the Sun – 2017’ along with the Greek island of Rhodes, for providing an average of 8.6 hours of sunshine a day.

This distinction resulted from the results of a 27 year study recently published by the German magazine, Algarve für Entdecker.

According to the Algarve Tourism Association, this study analysed all tourist destinations that can be visited from central europe within a three-hour flight time.

The data was collected on the Wetteronline.de weather service website and covers the period between 1990 and 2017.
