Faro

Portuguese Venice

The most well-known city in the Algarve, Faro boasts a cliffside location with popular beaches and a thriving cultural scene.
Change things up with a short trip to Kitesurf Eolis in Tavira (about 44 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: see the top attractions with Far-EcoTuk, walk around Ria Formosa, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Faro Cathedral, and see Algarve Buggy Tours.

Plan my Faro trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

London, UK to Faro is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and bus; or do a combination of car and ferry. Traveling from London in April, things will get a bit warmer in Faro: highs are around 24°C and lows about 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) so you can go by car to Lagos.

Jewel of the Algarve

The allure of the beaches and the town's historical center draw visitors to Lagos, a coastal destination in the Barlavento region of the Algarve.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lagos: Praia da Rocha (Praia Da Rocha & Rocha Surf Shop), Sagres (Fortaleza de Sagres, Cape Saint Vincent, &more) and Olhos de Agua ( Praia dos Olhos de Água & Falesia Beach). Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic natural features at Ponta da Piedade, kick back and relax at Praia do Camilo, gain a rich perspective with Taruga Benagil Tours, and trek along Percurso dos Sete Vales Suspensos.

To find maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Lagos trip maker website.
