Hello harbour

Have you really been to Faro if you haven’t caught a snap with the famous ‘Faro’ sign at the marina? This palm-lined plot is perfect for a stroll as you admire the fancy yachts in all their glory. Nearby Porta Nova Pier is your ticket to Ria Formosa Natural Park too. Hop on one of the boat trips for flora and fauna galore!

Shopping sprees? Yes please.

Swing by Mercado Municipal in the town centre if market browsing is for you. You can stroll between stacked-high stalls before putting your flip-flops up at one of the local cafés. For fashion and homewares in a one-stop-shop, check out Forum Algarve.

Old Town exploring

Wander through this quaint cobbled quarter where orange trees creak, locals natter and Portuguese charm shines bright. The cathedral’s the star of the show of course, but we’d argue those little arched alleys and tucked-away bakeries come in at a close joint second. And when night falls, cool clubs and trendy wine bars are on the menu.
