Faro is protected by an offshore natural barrier that is a nature reserve. The lagoon "Parque Natural da Ria Formosa" with its salt flats is a paradise for various bird species and is worth exploring - preferably by boat.
In Albufeira, which is located about 40 kilometres west of Faro, there is something for everyone:
Lagos, with its well-preserved old town protected by ancient Arab walls, is located about 90 km west of Faro. It is one of the most famous towns in the Algarve, not least because the best beaches in the region are nearby:

All in all, the most beautiful corners of the Algarve are close together, which is why day trips with the campervan from Faro or any other location of your choice are possible, but you can also plan an Algarve round trip with the campervan or continue the trip with a trip to the north.
Transport links make Faro an ideal place to rent a campervan:
Rent a campervan and from here you have numerous possibilities to start your journey on the well-developed road network. In order to fully appreciate the beauty of the landscape and to give yourself the opportunity to discover beautiful corners during your journey, the best option in the Algarve is to use the coastal roads, which are also easy to drive on in a campervan.
If you want to cover longer distances quickly, you can also use the motorway network, but you will have to pay a toll. Depending on the motorway, you can pay this at the payment points or electronically. If you rent a campervan, it is usually equipped with electronic transmitters. You will then be billed for the tolls when you return the campervan. Campervans are in vehicle class 2, which means a price per kilometre of about ten cents on toll roads.
Most petrol stations are open between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., are also suitable for campervans and offer the usual types of fuel. The lowest fuel prices can be found at large supermarkets such as Jumbo and Intermarché, with prices similar to or even slightly higher than the German price level.
In response to many wild parkers and campers, parking and overnight stays with campervans are now only permitted in designated areas; violations can result in severe fines.
