Known internationally as having some of the best beaches in the world, the southern coast of Portugal is always a popular holiday destination. In fact, three of the top 10 beaches in Portugal are on the Algarve along the coast where Faro is situated.
The city is served by Faro International Airport, a seaport, marina, railway & inter regional bus service which makes it one of the most accessible cities in Europe and a perfect cruise location. Whether you're holidaying in Faro or using it as a meeting point for a cruise, we have the perfect flight package available right here.
Once you have landed, Faro is a mere four miles away and is easily reached by local buses, taking about about 25 minutes. If you prefer a more private journey into town after your flight, Faro taxi drivers and car rental companies will oblige. Once you land, the airport in Faro offers the conveniences of a cash machine, bank, post office as well as a tourist centre.
This is why most people come - to lie on, turn brown and spend their days relaxing on. After your flight Faro beaches seem so welcoming with the sun blazing down and the cool waters of the Atlantic ready to embrace you.
The town beach, Praia de Faro, is a long stretch of golden sand with the advantage of being both sea-facing and with a more sheltered lagoon side. However being a town beach, it is very close to all amenities and also to the airport so you are likely to see and hear the flights Faro bound overhead.
For a quieter retreat, catch a ferry over to Farol to a sandbar beach. Alternatively there is a longer boat journey of over two hours to Ilha Deserta, part of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa and the most southerly mainland point of Portugal. Here is a glorious stretch of sand, perfect for a picnic as there are not so many amenities. For a proper day trip, make the effort to get to Ilha de Tavira, a 10 mile beach backed by sand dunes.
For ease of flights Faro could not be simpler; it is in a great situation and offers the holidaymaker everything they could ask for in a summer holiday. But do not forget winter time too when flights Faro bound could be even cheaper.
