Typical daytime summer temperatures are close to twenty eight degrees, whilst even the winter time hardly ever serves up unpleasant weather. Sea temperature averages in winter are close to fifteen degrees, rising to twenty two degrees within the summer time.
Faro’s large, modern day airport terminal is the main entry point for visitors from around the world, yet rather than head off to typical holiday resorts, some holidaymakers choose to stay close by as there’s a huge amount of options.
The Ria Formosa lagoon is one of the more impressive sights near Faro city, with numerous sandy seashores on the outer edge of what is a protected nature reserve.
Praia de Faro
Praia de Faro is close to the airport. It is actually an island, with the sea on one side and the Ria Formosa lagoon on the other. Both sides are great for swimming, whilst the scenic lagoon section is popular for sailors with dinghies and jet-ski riders. The golden sands make for the perfect destination in summer time with enough space, cafes, bars etc to fit everyone’s tastes for a refreshing and energising day at the beach.
For those who want to add a bit of adventure to their Faro holidays, there are lots of sandy beaches around the Ria Formosa Lagoon. These beaches are located on small islands and to get to them you’ll require a regular passenger ferry.
Known as ilhas, these tiny islands are perfect for exploring and enjoying a wonderful mixture of sand and sea in an strangely peaceful setting. The Ilha Deserta has a great restaurant, and is popular for swimming and a range of water sports activities while Ilha Culatra is a friendly community with a beautiful sandy beach that’s popular with locals and tourists alike.
