Useful information about the flight from Belfast to Faro

Faro and the Algarve

Faro is a location with a very interesting history attached. Originally inhabited by the Romans, this city in the Algarve was almost completely ruined by the Great Earthquake, occurring in 1755. Prior to this, Faro was a prosperous port, governed by the Moors, who were also responsible for giving the city its name. Faro in present times is a vibrant destination, with beautiful beaches and an energetic nightlife, although a few relics of its ancient past still remain, situated around Cidade Velha, the Old Town. 

 

When can you catch the best weather and events in the Algarve?

Faro is an "anytime" destination, with hot summers ranging from 27 to 35 degrees Celsius, and mild winter temperatures falling to between 8 to 17 degrees Celsius. Most tourists tend to travel to the Algarve between the months of April and October and peak seasons tend to get extremely busy. The Faro International Motorcycle Rally occurs in mid-July, while Faro's "birthday" falls on September 7th. This date marks the day that Faro received its official "city" title. Faro locals and visitors get to enjoy 2 whole weeks of revelries in commemoration, with exhibitions, parties and music.
