Flora and fauna

Faro has an enormously varied landscape. While on the west coast small sandy beaches are hidden between large rock formations, the south coast is dominated by miles of sandy beaches. Anyone who travels further into the Algarve will discover that the interior of this region is hilly and untouched. Ideal for getting to know the real Faro and discovering nature. There are fig trees, orange trees, cork oaks, cacti and almond trees, between which chameleons, storks and geckos have found their place. The west coast of Faro is formed by the National Park of Sudoeste Alentejano and Costa Vicentina. This enormous nature reserve starts at the city of Sines (district Setúbal), runs along the west coast of the district Beja and then ends on the south Portuguese coast at the city of Lagos. For dozens of migratory birds, this is the ideal resting and breeding area. They build their nests on the towering cliffs along the coast. Discover the green, the coast and the rugged cliff landscape while walking on one of the many signposted paths in this national park.

Activities

For a holiday full of sun, sea and beach, a holiday home in Faro is of course the ideal holiday destination. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean ensures that the beach is never far away and you can enjoy a wonderful sunshine everywhere. In the Algarve you can undertake numerous activities. A visit to one or more of the atmospheric cities of Faro is not to be missed anyway. Cities like Albufeira, Monchique, Lagos, Portimão or the capital Faro with the same name will sound familiar to many people. You'll find historic centers with churches, markets, countless restaurants and cosy squares where the locals come together.
