Alojamento Local growth.

Alojamento Local signTodays Diario reports that the Alojamento Local tourist sector now constitutes 25% of the tourist accommodation available in the archipelago. There are currently 2,145 individual units, with a total of more than 8,500 beds spread throughout the region. In the last five months there was a considerable increase in new Alojamento Local registrations. Supervisory authorities are policing the sector more diligently nowadays, although the legislation goes back to 2014.

Across the whole of Portugal, between May and July of this year there were 8,650 new official registrations under Alojamento Local, which representing double the number over the same period of 2016. The growth in registrations is explained not by the large-scale entry of private accommodation into the tourist rental market, but rather by legalizing existing units.
