Praia de Faro, Faro

4.1
#4 of 27 in Outdoors in Faro
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.

  • To be fair, we went off season and "The beast from the east" didn't help much either. There wasn't that much to see, but what was there was nice enough. There are places to eat around here and if you ...  more »

  • Stunning beach a short bus trip (number 16) from town. Endless sand, strong waves and a few bars and restaurants. Well worth a visit
  • Nasty brown stuff floating in the surf today. Beach closed to be fair. Normally Good for kids, right beside Faro city with a few good restaurants, Bar Wax being best both for location and food.
  • It s a perfect place to visit and stay. The beach stretches out for miles. The sand slides through your toes effortlessly. The water invites you to come play. Dogs are welcomed as long as you pick-up after frodo. This is definitely a place for families or people with children. If you are in a wheelchair, you will find it difficult to navigate in the sand. There are a number of places where you can park yourself while the family goes out on to the sand.
  • Nice beach with shower and clean toilets. The parking allows campers before the high season starts. Dogs are also allowed
  • Good beach with great sunset but the sand here is quite itchy because of sea shells
