If you want to start the New Year with a refreshing dip in the Atlantic Ocean? Many local municipals organize new year’s dive, generally starts at 11 am. I know there is one for sure in Armacao de Pera and praia Pintadinho near Ferragudo.

Can you buy fireworks in the Algarve?

NO, it is illegal to have your own fireworks,you need to have a license. If you can buy this in the Algarve or anywhere in Portugal, this is for sure ILLEGAL. Personally, I do like this system. Each council organize fire displays at midnight. So it is arranged centrally. Relax and watch the beautiful fire displays with a glass of champagne!
