3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Take the single-lane road bridge to Praia de Faro, actually a small island that packs a punch. In addition to the beach, you'll find food, shops, bars, and accommodation all squeezed into a small area. The island itself features a seaside coast and a lagoon coast. While many visitors head to the seaside, do not miss out on the water sports and easy swimming in the lagoons. The locals' bright, colorful boats floating along the water complete this picturesque site. Note that the island gets especially crowded on weekends.
