For many, Faro is simply the location of the airport where you arrive to begin your Algarve golf holiday. That would be to do it a disservice though, as it is a great base for a Portugal golf break in its own right, with the added advantage of less transfer time at either end of the break. Base yourself at the magnificent Dona Filipa or try the best-selling venues of Formosa Park or Monte da Quinta Suites.
The golf in Faro is second to none, with some of the Algarve’s finest course close by. Set in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, the stunning San Lorenzo is one Europe’s best courses and is a must-play. But don’t forget the three superb courses at nearby Quinta do Lago and the renowned Royal Course at Vale de Lobo with its iconic 16th hole across the cliffs. Playing any of these will guarantee you an Algarve golf break to remember.
