The temperature is rising across the Algarve so the National Maritime Authority has posted an alert for people to be sensible on the region’s beaches and coastal areas even suggesting that swimming in the sea is not a good idea this weekend.

The authority says that it is important to remember that the sea at this time of year is a winter sea, meaning that beaches and coastal areas are at high risk due to the effects of recent high seas. This has left some steep slopes in the sand and a danger of whirlpools and rip-tides.
