Due to its peripheral location, the Algarve enjoys good transport connections, both internally with the other Portuguese cities and externally with the rest of the world. Various national airlines have regular flights to travel to Algarve, making Faro a busy international airport.

The Algarve also benefits from a good road network, composed of motorways, trunk roads, and a range of secondary roads, making the journey comfortable and efficient whether you’re traveling by bus or driving in a rented car.
