Faro is the most visited city within the Algarve and tourists often arrive looking for a holiday, retail fix or have forgotten their swimmers! Situated just by the IC4 road, the Forum is on the road to and from the airport and includes free underground parking. This roofless plaza has everything you could possibly need; from fashion brands to cosmetics, supermarkets to pet stores. A modern, shopping complex, this centre still manages to mould itself into the appetising, Faro aesthetic.
The markets are one of the most enjoyable experiences of a holiday in the Algarve, and one of our favourites is the Quarteira market. Based one mile out of the town, Fonte Santa is easily accessible by a quick bus ride from the nearby town, or you can also take a taxi if you’d prefer. It’s an excellent place to find a bargain gift or souvenir, with its alternative and trendy environment. You can purchase handmade items ranging from throws, clothes and accessories; this is a superb place to wander through at your pleasure.
If you are ready to rock the Algarvian streets with fashionable labels like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, then you will want to visit San Antonio Street in Faro. Known for its higher end reputation, this glitzy street is home to the eminent Antonio Manuel. With the best in international fashion including Michael Kors, Hugo Boss and Emporio Armani on show, prepare for paparazzi when you touch back down home!
