Algarve rakes in the tourist cash

tourismPortugal’s National Institute of Statistics and the region’s tourist board agree on one thing, the number of tourists visiting the Algarve this year has been record-breaking with a September figure of 2.3 million overnight stays boosting the year’s total.

The September increase is up 2.3% in terms of the number of nights spent in the region but tourists are spending more, or being charged more, with receipts up over 10% on last year as hotels took in €138 million.
