Faro, Portugal

Faro is the proud capital city of the beautiful Algarve region. It lies on what many would call the most scenic coast in Europe.

Wide golden beaches with rough rocky outcrops; picturesque Portuguese towns; delicious fish restaurants; and a wonderful climate. These are what makes the Algarve so famous. Sun worshippers fly to Faro all year round to enjoy the charms of this sunny Portuguese region. And justifiably so as the beaches are not only known for their natural beauty, but also for their fabulous sunsets.
