Faro is the main city of Algarve, the most southern region of Portugal. It is a very popular destination for Northern European travelers who appreciate the sunny weather and laid-back beach lifestyle in a country that, for Europe's standards, won't leave your pocket empty by the end of the trip.

Not only is the Algarve coast extensive and a great doorway into the Mediterranean Sea -- Faro's beach itself extends for several kilometers -- but this region also offers other delights in the shape of small seaside towns that are great to explore, Algarvian cuisine (naturally based mainly on seafood), and Portugal's most popular destination for golfing.

There are a few Faro hostels downtown. This is a great city to be used as point of entry to the Algarve region and, sometimes, even to the South of Spain, which can be reached by road in a couple of hours. Base yourself in Faro if you wish you surf the southern coast of Portugal or meet fellow English-speaking travelers. Young groups of friends (Portuguese and foreign) are very common during summer months, while the off-season gets busy mainly with retired tourists and couples who have bought villas in this region to enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and comparatively affordable prices. With so many tourists and long-term foreigners living in Faro, you are sure to make friends and interact with people who speak English and even German. 

Faro's nightlight is vibrant, with a variety of hang-outs mainly in the old part of town, getting busier during summer months. During the day, enjoying drinks at the several bars by the beach is sure to be fun! This is arguably Portugal's beach life at its best!
