Faro Airport

Airport Car Rental

Located near the sizable city of the same name, Faro Airport is the main gateway to the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region. Known for its beautiful beaches and scenic coastal towns, but also fascinating history, the Algarve is one of the gems of this part of Europe. These are four of the most popular attractions of the region:

  • Albufeira. The Algarve might have the highest proportion of picturesque and laid back beach towns anywhere in Europe, and among them, Albufeira Albufeira is one of the most popular. Incredible Atlantic beaches along the entire coastline give you ample choice of where to soak up the sun, or take up water sports. Albufeira has a twin personality split between its nightlife mecca strip and ‘new town’ and its slightly more llaid-backhistoric old town. Hidden in its old town, you’ll find traditional fish restaurants, churches, and the Archaeological Museum sharing the history of Albufeira’s Roman and Moorish past. 
  • Inland. Much more sparsely populated and less explored than the coastal part, the Algarve’s inland is usually overlooked by travelers. But give it a chance and you’ll find a fascinating destination that offers everything from majestic (yet accessible) peaks to traditional villages, spas dating back for millennia and stunning views of the ocean below. Unfortunately, during the recent decade the Algarve’s forested laid-backinterior has suffered from sporadic wildfires in its eucalyptus forests, so make sure to check the wildfire forecast if you’re visiting during the warmer half of the year.
  • Portimão. The second-largest city of the Algarve, Portimão is also something of the region’s culinary capital, especially when it comes to seafood coming straight out of the Atlantic. The prime attraction of Portimão is its beach resort of Praia da Rocha, offering the biggest and most expensive stretches of sand in this part of the Algarve. In Portimão’s harbour, you’ll find boat trips to go dolphin watching or explore the caves and coves of the rocky coastline. Portimão is on the way from Faro to Albufeira and Lagos.
  • Sagres. Located right next to the southwesternmost point of Europe, Sagres is known not just for its extreme location – nor only for the famous Portuguese beer brand which is named after the town – but as one of the quaintest coastal destinations of Algarve. A place with lighthouses, forts, and long, pristine beaches, the town offers access to some of the best hiking trails in Portugal. The drive from the Faro Airport to Sagres takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Lisbon (278 km / 172 mi). The capital of Portugal is considered by many to be one of the greatest travel destinations in Europe, and for a good reason - it is a picturesque city full of landmarks, great restaurants, active nightlife, and fun things to do.
  • Porto (549 km / 341 mi). Located in the northernmost region of Portugal near the border with Spain, Porto is a historic riverside city with a deep connection to Portuguese history. There are many beautiful churches, palaces, and bridges to marvel at, but Porto’s number one attraction is simply roaming through the labyrinth of its mazy streets.
  • Malaga (408 km / 253 mi). Located in neighboring Spain, Malaga is a fun travel destination. The city is best known for its beautiful beaches, nightlife, and the surrounding Costa del Sol region, but a number of amazing inland national parks are also nearby. To travel from Faro to Malaga or any other city in Spain, you’ll have to cross an international border, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it.
  • Lagos (90 km / 56 mi). Located in the western Algarve region a one-hour drive from Faro, Lagos is a great place to visit. The town is famous for its stunning beaches and coves surrounded by golden cliffs, but also its lively and historic center with a number of well-preserved buildings.
  • Tavira (41 km / 25 mi). A historic riverside town in the Algarve, Tavira is just east of Faro. A small town of only about 25,000 inhabitants, it punches way above its weight when it comes to things to see and do. These include a large protected nature area that is great for bird watching, an olive tree that is more than 2,000 years old, and the Tuna Fishing Museum dedicated to the historic industry of the region.
  • Alvor (75 km / 46 mi) This former fishing village is now a popular resort on the doorstep of a lagoon. The lagoon offers calm bathing waters and an exceptional place to practice wind and water sports. In its small harbour, you’ll find tour operators offering thrilling powerboat rides, or relaxing trips exploring the Algarve coastline. With a rich fishing heritage that continues to this day, you’ll find some of the best fish restaurants in the Algarve!
  • Armacao de Pera (52 km / 32 mi). A historic fishing village, Armacao attracts thousands of visitors every summer thanks to its beautiful coastline and accessible beaches. Many quality seaside restaurants are open every summer.
  • Portimao (71 km / 44 mi). The second city of Algarve, Portimao is a fun travel destination. Like other places in the region, it is home to beautiful beaches, some well-preserved architecture, and laid back atmosphere. From Portimao, you can also easily access Monchique, one of the most interesting inland destinations of Algarve.

We stayed at Boavista golf and spa about 8 minutes drive from Lagos.A car is necessary at this location but the location is superb. Visited Albufeira and Villamoura and would advise you check sunset time and go out to Sagres be there 15 minutes early and watch the beautiful sunset from the cliff tops The fort is at this point also which closes at 5.00pm . Combine the two there is a restaurant we didn't visit due to time schedule nearby. Beautiful beaches in the nearby areas of Lagos. Mostly the staff of restaurants helpful and professional but not quite as friendly in the way Spanish restaurants staff are . That's Just a point that we had shared in conversation with surprisingly! Portuguese people themselves not meant to be in any way detrimental just as an observation but certainly not by way of a complaint. Very happy with everything we experienced

We traveled almost whole south of Portugal - cities and a lot of beaches. It was thanks to borrowed car. One day we rented paddleboards to see Benagil cave. There was a lot of people but it was worth it! I hightly recommen to rent a car, because then you can see a beauty of the Algarve.

Love the coastline and the many villages we toured. Western coast is fabulous with many hidden beaches. Took a boat tour of the coast and the caves, spectacular. Did an overnight trip to Evora and enjoyed the history and touring the city. Stayed in a great place in Albufeira for the month of March and then moved to Olhao for a week in April. Loved both places. Everything was within walking distance. Great restaurants and some amazing wines. Even though prices are rising and there are more tourists all the time, still a great place to go for a reasonable price.

Definitely recommend a smaller vehicle for parking and fuel economy. We drove along the coast in Spain, visited small towns and the big ones too. It takes an iron will to drive into the big cities (Seville, Lisbon etc.) The traffic circles are very efficient at moving traffic but a little intimidating If you are new to the area. Luckily I had a co-pilot giving me directions otherwise it would have been much more complicated. We parked the car as much as possible and used Uber to get around town and I highly recommend doing the same.
