Faro Introduction  
  1. With one of the most favourable climates in Europe, it isn’t hard to see the appeal of the Algarve region. Millions of sun-starved Brits, Germans, Dutch and Scandinavians flock to southernmost region of Portugal on package holidays each year. Most are attracted by the 200km of beautiful coastline, pristine beaches, affordable prices and laid back atmosphere.

Faro Top Attractions  
  1. Local Towns

    The historic Moorish town of Silves is worth making a day trip for. Its distinctive medieval centre and city walls will entice any history buff or any traveller wanted to escape the busy beaches. Be sure to check out the beer festival hosted every July. Also of note is the lively coastal town of Lagos with its attractive café-lined cobbled streets.

  2. The Great Outdoors

    The Algarve is Portugal’s most popular tourist destination as many visitors are drawn by its 200km of beautiful coastline and wonderful outdoor activities. With over 30 top golf courses scattered around the region it is considered by many to be one of the finest golfing destinations in the world for any level of experience. Outdoor enthusiasts are well served by an abundance of hiking trails weaving through the Caldeirao Mountains and Sagres Cape.

  3. Dining and Nightlife

    Faro has a plentiful amount of affordable restaurants serving up regional specialities such as piri piri chicken as well as other international options. There is an exciting choice of bars and clubs with revellers partying into the early hours dotted around the downtown.

  4. Local Attractions

    On its seafront, the region’s capital is home to the beautiful Praia de Faro, a sun-kissed un-crowded stretch of beach several kilometres long. The boat trip to Rio Formosa, a nature reserve and island on the cusp of the Spanish border is a trip well worth taking. A visit to the Faro Jewish Heritage Museum will provide an excellent insight into one of the last remaining Sephardi Jewish communities remaining on the Iberian Peninsula.

  5. Old Town

    Experience the old ways of Portugal walking down cobbled streets surrounded by colourful architecture and simple boutiques.
