Beach / sunbathing City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Desert Island beach is GORGEOUS and empty. But the restaurant is overpriced so make sure you take your own food and parasol (as there is no shade).

Liked: I enjoyed the excellent transport links, to beaches and other towns. The old city was gorgeous and everywhere was quiet even though it was high season.

Disliked: Faro is generally a transit town with people moving on to other towns soon after arrival so there is limited things to do in the city centre.
