Suggested Driving Itineraries and Places to Visit


Faro is the main starting point, for the thousands of tourists, who flock to this region annually.

The reasons are obvious. The easy going Portuguese, the wonderful sunshine, delightful sea food and fine wines, to mention just a few.

Faro has retained the charm of a small Portuguese fishing village. This is evident in the old town of Cidade Velha, which oozes charm. The old town of Faro can easily be explored on foot. Entrance is gained through an 18th century gate, and the surrounding medieval walls will ensure you will not get lost.

There are numerous worthwhile destinations in every direction from Faro, all accessible by car. Quality beaches stretch the entire length of the Algarvian coastline, with picturesque fishing villages and towns scattered in between.

The town of Tavira, also known as the 'cidade das igrejinhas' (little churches town), boasts a very rich historical past which can be seen in its buildings and in the street planning of the town centre. The area also features the spectacular Tavira Island and the fabulous Ria Formosa Nature Park.

To the west of Faro, Portimao is a pretty city with excellent shopping and fine dining. One of the best streets to shop along is Rua do Comercio, a pedestrian mall which begins from the old market square near the parish church in the highest part of town. The two-kilometre stretch of Praia da Rocha beach to the south of town is typically famous for its weird rock formations.

Along a good road 16kms northwest of Faro is the vibrant market town of Loule, set in almond-covered foothills. It is an ancient town, but only remnants of its once Roman, and later Moorish castle walls, remain. The castle walls are in the central area that is best known among visitors for its craftsmen, old world charm and vibrant nightlife.

Albufeira is the undisputed capital of the beach resorts and it's easy to see why. Enormous pock-marked sandstone cliffs stand over the long golden sweep of Praia dos Barcos beach, which offers every type of water sport. There are a few aqua parks and a combined zoo/marine park just outside the resort for family entertainment.

The interesting village of Paderne, with its ruined castle perched on an isolated hill, is a short drive from Albufeira; while at Ponte Grande there are impressive caverns with large arches, and the underwater caverns of Grutas do Xorino.

Overall Experience : I think the service from FASTCarhire is very good and would recommend them to anyone.
Supplier Service: The pick up process is fairy quick and painless and the cars are within a short walking distance from the office. The staff are friendly and helpful English speakers.
Car: Our car this year was a well used 2006 model Ford Fiesta which was serviceable if a little tatty (it would have been nice to have had the current model). The actual car make / model you get is always unknown until you walk out to the car with one of their staff to confirm the condition. I think I would like to know this in advance.
