Why is the Algarve such a popular destination? Yes, it’s because you can get cheap flights from most UK airports and Yes it’s because the weather is good pretty much all year round. Oh, and Yes, it’s because it has a huge number of golf courses. But the next time you go to the Algarve, have a day away from the beach and take in some of the Algarve’s more traditional attractions.
Capital of Portugal’s popular Algarve region, Faro is the southernmost city in the country and though we typically associate The Algarve as being one rife with tourism, flights to Faro will land you in an altogether calmer holiday experience. And though when the sun goes down there is still plenty of fun to be had, you’ll find Faro gives a much truer Portuguese experience than its busier neighbours.
