The Algarve has some of the best beaches in Europe - a key consideration for many meeting planners, not to mention delegates keen to dip a toe in the water in between conference sessions.
For incentive activities, off-duty downtime, outdoor social events or just a breath of fresh air, you and your delegates will be spoiled for choice.
From east to west there's a stretch of coastline - over 200 kilometres to be precise - that will suit everybody, from sheltered dunes to rocky coves, from tiny bays to vast stretches of open sands, and from shallow lagoons to the crashing surf of the wild Atlantic.
In short, from sunrise to sunset, in brilliant sunshine or welcoming shade and throughout the seasons, the Algarve has a beach to meet your requirements.
Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year, the Algarve enjoys the perfect climate to complement its spectacular coastline, making it an ideal destination in which to plan outdoor events and activities of all kinds.
Sports fanatics? Thrill seekers? Speed freaks? The beach offers all types of watersports for incentive activities, team-building and out-of-hours relaxation, from the exhilaration of scuba diving or water-skiing to the gentler pleasures of sailing or motor cruising, and the chance to explore the ever-changing coastline.
In search of a location for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, parties, cocktail receptions, gala events or just a drink to unwind after a day in the meeting room? The beaches of the Algarve offer endless possibilities.
Stage your own event on the beach itself, or take advantage of the beachfront locations of many of the Algarve's top hotels, trendy beach bars, Arabian-style tents or ocean-view restaurants, ideal for groups of all sizes.
Whether you and your delegates are looking for peace, quiet and splendid isolation, or the buzz of noise, people and activity, the Algarve - with over a hundred beaches to choose from - has one with your name on it.
