Things to do in Faro

Think of The Algarve and no doubt it’s the spectacular beaches that first spring to mind. But there are plenty of other things to do in Faro and the surrounding areas.

Admire the 13th century Silves castle, interact with animals and birds at Zoo Marine or head to Mar Ilimitado at Sagres to see sea life in its natural habitat. Hire a car and see the sights at your own pace – Lisbon and the beaches of the Algarve are all nearby. Praia da Amoreira boasts sweeping sands and endless rock pools while Praia do Martinhal is perfect for surfing, body boarding and windsurfing.

Beaches

Beaches

Visit secluded Praia de Albandeira for an insight into the undiscovered Algarve. This tiny beach has no water sports, no umbrellas and no sunbeds – perfect for pure escapism. Choose one of the blue flag beaches - the endless sands of Praia do Ancao are popular with families, whilst energetic Praia do Martinhal is great for surfing and other activities.

Museums/sightseeing

Museums/sightseeing

You’ll find attractions for the whole family on holidays in Faro and the surrounding areas. Visit the Castle of Silves, a Moorish fortress that dates back to the 13th century. Or stop at the pretty fishing village of Olhao and browse the markets, before sampling the freshly caught seafood at one of the local restaurants.

Food

Food

The range of dining is certain to satisfy every taste bud – from sophisticated Portuguese tapas to rough-and-ready beachfront dining. Visit Adega Vila Lisa in the central Algarve. Situated off the beaten path, this hidden treasure has no menu, allowing chef Jose Vila to create unique, inspirational dishes. Or enjoy exquisite cuisine and jazz at Gisela’s – the outdoor terrace boasts incredible sea views.
