"Distrito Faro" Top 5 Page for this destination Portugal Favorite Tip by micas_pt

Portugal General: 321 reviews and 294 photos


Favorite thing: This district, commonly known all over the world as Algarve, is one of the most touristy districts in Portugal, due to its fabulous beaches and warm climate. The beaches are very beautiful and the sea is somewhat warm - the more you stay away from Atlantic and get close to Mediterranean, the warmer and quieter the beach water is. All through the year, Algarve has a mild climate (except for the windy area of Sagres). But if you move some ?steps? into the interior, Algarve has some beautiful mountain landscapes and loads of off the beaten path spots. While in Algarve you should eat seafood and fresh fish, taste the sweeties made of almonds and eggs and drink the liquor made of bitter almonds. Watch out for sunburns!!
