The Faro beach or Faro Island is a small peninsula in the eastern shores of the Algarve. Integrated in the Natural Park of Ria Formosa and bounded by the beaches of Quinta do Lago, on the west side and the islands of Barreta/Deserta and Farol/Culatra on the east, the Faro beach is one of the most distinguished natural jewels of the Algarve´s Eastern Coast.

Faro’s beach is well known for being widely spacious, open and meticulously maintained, giving you all the enjoyment you need while relaxing under the sun. The quite harmony and biodiversity that spread along its two sides, the lagoon side and the seafaring side, make it the perfect spot to go for a stroll or just chill reading a book.



Only 3.5 km away from the airport and extremely close to the cosmopolitan centre of Faro, where you can find a large amount of shops, restaurants and entertainment outdoor activities, the Faro beach is one of the calmest, easiest places to ocean swim. The warmth of the sea and colors really are enchanting.
