The gateway to Portugal's Algarve coast, cheap flights to Faro put you close to some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Faro is in the ideal location for getting around the Algarve, which is made even easier with car hire, but don't forget that Faro itself can be a great holiday destination too!

It's easy to overlook Faro as an end point, because it's lacking in beaches. But Faro's Old Town is crammed with beautiful and historical buildings such as the Cathedral of Faro. Albufeira offers the best of the Algarve's nightlife, and golfing fans need look no further than the exceptional courses of Vilamoura or Vale do Lobo. If you're feeling flush and want to treat yourself then choose a five-star hotel by the Marina in Faro or along the beach front. You can read more on Faro and the Algarve here.

What to do in Faro

The Algarve is known for its natural beauty and the diversity of its ecosystems. Head to Ria Formosa lagoon, where islands shield the water from the fierce Atlantic Ocean. Popular among bird-watchers, this area is also home to seahorses and native dogs, and nothing beats a cruise through its deep blue waters on a sunny day. One of Faro's main attractions is its Old Town. Wander the cobblestoned streets of this little slice of history, encircled by ancient walls, stopping off at the city's famous Gothic Se Cathedral, Paco Episcopal Palace and the Nossa Senhora convent. Of course, no trip to the Algarve is complete without a trip to a beach - Praia de Faro and Praia da Amoreira are two of the best.

Getting to Faro

Starting your holiday in Faro or the Algarve is easy, with flights available from all over the UK, particularly during the summer. The flying time from most UK airports is around two and a half hours. If you want to save money, look for package holidays in Faro, but if you're after something a little more unusual then book your flight and hotel separately and strike out on your own!

Direct Flights to Algarve

Faro is a popular year-round destination, which means direct flights are not difficult to find throughout the year, from a number of different UK airports. Ryanair offers competitive prices from Bristol, Newquay, Birmingham, Cardiff, Newcastle and Manchester, and with easyJet, you can choose from several UK airports including Belfast. TAP Air Portugal and British Airways also offer flights to the Portuguese city.

Faro's close proximity to the Algarve's seaside resorts means that the airport is very well connected, and competition between airlines is fierce. It is not uncommon to find direct flights to Faro for under £50 - combine these with a hotel for a fantastic Algarve holiday deal. Look outside the peak summer months, which are the most popular times for an all inclusive Algarve holiday, for the cheapest packages.

On arrival in Faro

Faro Airport lies just to the west of the town and there are two bus routes from the centre that include the airport, as well as a dedicated shuttle bus. Taxis are available but if you're with a group, booking a private shuttle may prove cheaper. Car hire is also popular but can sell out during the busy summer months, so be sure to book ahead - this will also get you the best rates. If you're heading off on holiday along the Algarve coast it's certainly worth checking out the prices of adding a shuttle transfer to your holiday package. This is usually the cheapest and easiest way to get around after your flight lands in Faro.

Getting around Faro

Car hire is vital if you've hired a villa in the Algarve, or if you're planning on exploring the region. There are buses, even to some of the most remote villages, but as there may only be one or two per day they don't compare to the convenience of having your own wheels. However if you're planning on just staying in Faro itself then you'll easily get by on foot, by bus or by taxi.

Travelling further afield

Portugal has a good public transport network comprising trains both regular and high-speed for longer journeys, and intercity coaches. It's easy to get to Lagos, Lisbon and Porto as well as into Spain to Madrid and Seville. Driving in the Algarve is also easy, there are plenty of signs and fewer toll roads than further north.

When to go to Faro

Summer is the height of the tourist season for Faro, particularly during European school holidays, so it's important to book your accommodation early and arrange your car hire in advance as well. Spring and autumn are the best times to appreciate the diversity at the Ria Formosa and Faro is generally quieter then, but the weather is still good. Visiting in winter you'll find brilliant prices, though be aware that it can get so quiet that some of the attractions can shut down for the season!
