Cheap flights to Faro
Faro is the gateway to the Algarve, a wonderfully sunny area of Portugal welcoming thousands of tourists every year. With year-round sunshine, miles of beautiful sandy beaches and flower-decked, whitewashed villages it’s not difficult to see why Faro is such a popular holiday destination.
Head to towns like Albufeira and Lagos to explore historic Portugese streets and stop a while in one of the region’s many restaurants to sample the mouth-watering local cuisine; Faro is not a place to head to if you’re on a strict diet. Venture along the beach-lined Atlantic coast to find resorts to suit every need, from the activity-filled child-friendly Lagos, Albufeira and Praia da Rocha to the luxurious marina at Vilamoura, and the historic towns of Silves, Tavira or Sagres.
Head to the west of the Algarve to catch some of its famous waves: the coast around Sagres is the best, as the headland nearly always has surf waves on one of its many beaches.
There are impressive Easter parades in São Bras de Alportel and Loulé, but June is known as the month of festivals. Riotous festas for the popular saint' of António (12-13), João (23-24) and Pedro (28-29) involve late-night are celebrations, live music and street parties in most of the main towns.
The Algarve's mountains make a pleasant alternative to the beaches, and at Caldas de Monchique you'll find a beautifully renovated little spa town nestled into a wooded valley, with lovely walks into the surrounding hills.
