The gateway to the Portuguese Algarve, Faro is one of one of Portugal’s best-loved and beautiful areas.
With cheap flights to Faro, holidays in the region give you the opportunity to explore one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. The Algarve has magnificent beaches, and resorts with high-quality amenities that retain their historic charm to this day, where you can get some of the freshest and best seafood in Europe. Then, of course, there are the Championship-quality golf courses: some of Europe’s best, these are a major draw.
Much of the fun of Algarve holidays traditionally is found on the incredible beaches, such as the glorious Praia da Marinh. During the day you can soak up the sun by the sea or pool, or try some of the many water sports on offer. If that gets too much, why don’t you explore some of the region’s culture, by visiting the ancient maritime town of Lagos, or the city of Silves, capital of the Algarve during Moorish rule? At night, there are plenty of bars and nightclubs in towns such as Albufeira, or if you prefer something more peaceful, then why not enjoy dinner and a wander along the marina at Vilamoura?
The Algarve is also the perfect destination for families, with wide, open and safe beaches as well as fun activities away from the coast, such as the exhilarating Slide and Splash Water Park near Lagoa and the beach town of Carvoeiro.
