Bem-vindo to Faro, the compact capital city of the Algarve. With a lovely beach vibe and hours of sunshine each year, breeze through the airport from Southampton and you’ll be there in just two and a half hours. 

With many holidaymakers bypassing its charms and heading straight to the Algarve’s plentiful resorts, chances are you’ll share this delightful city with just the friendly locals and handful of fellow tourists. Stop off and stay awhile to sample its medieval cobbled streets and surprisingly quiet beaches, fabulous nightlife and tempting seafood bars.

Faro also has idyllic island beaches as well as the stunning Ria Formosa nature reserve nearby. Closer to home the very pretty Old Town is nice and compact, with lots of things to wander round, including good shopping, Faro Cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace

But when the sunshine beckons, take a water taxi and bliss out on what Faro does best – namely miles and miles of beautifully quiet beaches.

Getting there

Flybe takes you to Faro’s international airport from Southampton Airport in just two and a half hours.
