  • We stayed there for some hours, we went during Summer just to go to the beach. It was really nice! There were a lot of shells and the water was refreshing! There is no special place to eat, sometimes too expensive for the food they offer, we had a nice picnic.
  • I loved the Ferry across to Farol from Faro City. It was €5 return if i remember correctly. In Farol you have the lighthouse & a cute little island abd beautiful beach. It is most definitely worth a visit.
  • This is heaven on Earth for the beach lovers💙🇵🇹
  • Stunning beach, lovely cafes. Would like to stay here rather than just a day trip!
  • Ilha do Farol was beautiful. The beach and the water is gorgeous. I adored the charming white houses on paths. The ferry ride was fun!
