Faro Holidays

Faro
Overview

Crowned as the capital of the Algarve, Faro holidays offer all the excitement of a city break along with beautiful beaches to match. The resort has a fair share of sights and attractions to keep you busy, from its historical old town and architectural delights to its shopping and bar-hopping opportunities. Lay down your towel at Praia de Faro beach where you can watch the watersports, potter along the busy promenade and explore the shops, bars and restaurants nearby.

 

If you like to explore during your holidays to Faro, you’re sure to catch some culture around the winding streets of Cidade Velha, the oldest district in Faro. Or why not hit the greens at the Algarve's top golf resorts? For beach babes, Faro's neighbouring resorts of Albufeira and Vilamoura have sweeping golden sands, more watersports and lively nightlife that's both family-friendly and popular with the youngsters. If shopping suits you better, the city centre is sprinkled with boutiques and big-name brand stores.

 

Holidays to Faro have lots of leisurely activities to enjoy too, whether you want to stroll around the smart marina, hit the national parks or wine and dine in the pretty plazas! Appreciate the gothic architecture as you enter the town through magnificent medieval arches and be sure to stop by the Cathedral of Faro, too. Popular with friends, families of all ages and couples looking for sunshine holidays, Faro and the Algarve has a wide range of great-value accommodation. So whether you're looking for easy all-inclusives, half board Faro hotels or full board gems, we have the holiday for you.
