There is nothing better than soaking up the sun, hearing the waves crash while sipping on your pina colada. What makes it even more blissful is if you know that you are relaxing on a top quality beach that comes highly recommended.
Well, in Portugal, there are 462 beaches, both coastal and interior just waiting for that stamp of approval for being good beaches. This stamp will obviously be given by the Portuguese Environment Agency who are looking for beaches of distinction.
The wait is nail biting as the organisation will only be making their decision after 2 February.
A quarter of the beaches on the list are found in Algarve while most of the beaches are found in Albufeira.
