The cobble-stoned capital of the Algarve, Faro is a great jumping-off point for exploring the region. Stay a few days though, and you'll discover that this wonderful, whitewashed town is well worth a visit in its own right. In the morning, when it's a little cooler, take the time to explore the town and see its architectural treasures from Moorish and Roman ruins to the old town's mighty medieval walls.
Then, come afternoon, soak up the sun while exploring the lagoon-dotted Ria Formosa Natural Park which stretches across a dizzying 42,000 acres of land. Follow the myriad species of birds who travel to its waters during the spring and autumn migrations and enjoy the sleepy splendour of the surroundings. Faro holidays are all about relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors whether you're playing a game of golf on a vibrant green course or simply laying out on the nearest beach.
