TripAdvisor has announced their ‘Travellers’ Choice awards’ for 2018 and the Algarve has had some strong results.

In the World’s Top Beaches category Grace Bay in the Turks and Caicos came 1st, however the Algarve made the top 25 with Falesia achieving a very credible 12th position.

Meanwhile in the European Top Beaches Category the top entries for the Algarve were Falesia in 3rd, Lagos’ Praia Dona Ana in 13th and Praia da Rocha in Portimão coming 14th . The list was topped by Spain’s La Concha beach.

TripAdvisor says that the “Travellers’ Choice awards are the highest honour TripAdvisor can bestow. The only travel industry awards based on millions of reviews and opinions from travellers around the world, these annual awards reflect “the best of the best” for service, quality, and customer satisfaction, from hotels and accommodations to destinations, attractions, and even brands and products.

Travellers’ Choice award winners are selected annually based on feedback from millions of TripAdvisor members. Travellers’ Choice awards single out not just popular choices, but truly exceptional ones that keep travellers coming back.”

This is certainly good news for the Algarve and underlines the growth in popularity of this beautiful region of Portugal.
