Algarve, Portugal, is only a 3 hour flight (or less) from the United Kingdom, Ireland and many other parts of Europe. Flights arrive to the region’s sole international airport, Faro Airport, which is in central Algarve. Faro flights arrive daily throughout the year, with several arrivals and departures each day from airlines during the busiest summer months of July to September.
For the hundreds of thousands of holiday-makers from around the world that fly into Faro Airport or drive or sail from other parts of Europe each year, the Algarve offers the promise of sun-drenched days at the beach, sharing in a lovely relaxed and welcoming family-orientated culture and endless options for dining out and things to do, for all ages.
