How to get to Faro beach in the Algarve, portugal

Faro beach in the Eastern Algarve Portugal

Faro beach is very easy to get to. We start our directions from the roundabout at the entry/exit to Faro’s International Airport.

 

Zero your trip counter at the roundabout  - the large roundabout with the statues on immediately outside Faro airport. Coming from the direction of the airport, you need to drive around the roundabout and take the 2nd exit. Driving from the opposite direction, (heading for the airport), you need the first exit. The exit is sign posted “Praia de Faro”. After just a couple of hundred metres you will see the straight road ahead of you. Keep going and at 1.6km, you will have reached the bend in the road, where the end of the airport runway lays. Keep going on this road and at about 2.3km, you will see the lagoon on both sides of the road. At 2.8km, you will reach traffic lights which allow you to drive onto the single lane road bridge. At 3.3km you will have reached the other side and you will be facing a large car park. Parking is free, and it may be busy in peak times. You can walk left or right from the car park and you will come across many cafes and restaurants. Behind you is the lagoon, and in front of you is the ocean. A fabulously wide beach awaits you, just a few kilometres from Faro’s International Airport...

 

Welcome to Faro Beach !
