If you are traveling to Algarve, Faro Airport is almost certainly your entry point in Portugal
If you are traveling to the Algarve, Faro Airport is almost certainly your entry point in Portugal. Located in the south of Portugal, this has been one of the airports with the highest growth rates in recent years in Europe.
Known for the best beaches, hotels and golf courses in Portugal, the Algarve has been for many years one of the favorite destinations for holidays in the world. Albufeira, Vilamoura, Carvoeiro, Portimão, Alvor, Lagos and Tavira, are some of the best resorts in the Algarve.
In 2016 about 7 million passengers travelled to Faro Airport beating the record established on the previous year. There was an increase of 18% compared to 2015. In 2017, growth is expected to be similar to 2016.
Portugal is known as a safe destination, benefiting from the insecurity experienced in other tourist destinations such as Tunisia, Tunisia or major European capitals. The number of available options and their quality are also improving, with new developments and golf courses being built, or as well as the upgrading of the older hotels.
The airport is located 7km from Faro City, an increasingly trendy city, which we highly recommend you to visit.
Located inside Ria Formosa, a nature reserve where you can see some unique bird species in the world, as well as some of the best and most reserved beaches in Portugal.
