Portimao Mini Guide

Portimao is the second largest city on the Algarve after Faro and has a vibrant atmosphere with many architecturally significant buildings, especially in the old town. The city was primarily a fishing centre and the locally cooked sardines are a speciality of the city. Many people go there for the nearby beaches, enabling them to spend the day on Praia da Rocha or the smaller but more attractive Praia do Vau.

How do I get to Portimao?
Portimao has its own little airport nearby but only accepts private planes so unless you are incredibly wealthy, you will need to fly into Faro Airport about 45 miles away.  Faro takes flights from all over Europe including several airports in the UK with routes operated by scheduled or charter companies. There’s a train link from the airport that stops in Portimao but the journey is very slow and the scenery not always that picturesque. You can hire a car from the airport or once you are in the city and this will help you reach the best of the local beaches independently.
