Faro Airport Transfers to Portimão
The City of Portimão
Located on the coast at the mouth of the Rio Arade, this city boomed in the 90s.
Despite the many featureless new buildings, it succeeded in retaining its own atmosphere. This can be ascribed to the fishing boats, which chug past the city center on the Rio Arade to the river harbor. The anchorage is well protected from wind and waves.
With its esplanades, palm trees, yacht marina, pier, cafes and riverside promenade, the town has a hint of the exotic. Take a stroll along it or in the streets behind for an enjoyable experience. Portimão is the shopping hub of the western Algarve, while at the same time very conscious of its cultural responsibility.
This comes across in an especially pronounced manner in its culinary culture. In May, the city’s top restaurants play host to ‘Culinary Week’ drawing in gourmands from all over to savour and critique typical Algarve fare.
In August holiday makers pour in for the famous Festival da Sardinha.
