Why Move to Faro?

Faro is a historic and culturally rich city that boasts a variety of fascinating tourist attractions. Sadly, Faro is often overlooked, considered purely for its airport, but spend time in Faro, and you will discover a charming and authentic Portuguese city.

The delightful historic centre of Faro is encircled by ancient city walls and contains a Gothic cathedral, the Bishop’s palace and pretty cobbled backstreets. Outside of the walls is the modern city centre, with its pedestrianised shopping streets, scenic plazas and variety of restaurants and bars.

South of Faro is the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, a series of saltwater lagoons and mudflats, which are a haven for migratory birds and wildlife. Along the seaward side of the Ria Formosa are three sandbar islands, and these are the location of Faro’s pristine beaches.

Faro is a likable city, and its tourist diversity means it will appeal to a wide selection of visitors. This article will provide a tourist guide to Faro, either for a day trip or a holiday.

• The deserted beaches of the Ilha Deserta
• The small fishing community on the Ilha da Culatra
• The bustling summer beach resort of Praia de Faro

Faro should not be considered as a beach resort, as there are no beaches within walking distance of the city centre. Faro’s beaches are found on the southern side of the three sandbar islands (Ilha de Faro, Ilha Deserta and the Ilha da Culatra), which shelter the mudflats of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa.

The Ilha de Faro has a 5km coastline of golden sands, and this beach is referred to as the Praia de Faro. The Praia de Faro has low-key tourist development, with relaxed cafes and small beach bars, which is surprising considering it is less than a five-minute drive from Faro airport.

The Ilha Deserta, as the name implies, is a deserted island, which can only be reached by boat. Along the tranquil sandy shoreline of the Ilha Deserta, is the Cabo de Santa Maria, the most southerly point of Portugal. The Ilha da Culatra has similar beaches to the other two islands and is also the location of a traditional fishing community, based in the village of Culatra.
