Discusses the profile for a global intervention which would lead to an effective and virtuous circle of long‐term development for the Algarve Region, and argues that the seasonal nature of the tourism industry linked to school holidays and the excellent climate aggravates, as a general rule, the already existing fragility of its territory structure, provoking serious ecological imbalances. Based on the existing panorama, a need for a response, which should be corrective rather than preventive, is suggested.
