Your holiday to Portugal is the perfect occasion to update your wardrobe – but save it until you get to Faro! The Algarve region is the ideal place to spend time indulging yourself and getting lost in the exquisite boutiques, charming markets and bustling town centres. Faro has so much more to offer than its art and history, so take a different path away from its crowded tourist attractions and enjoy exploring the fabulous quality products on offer.

It’s nice and easy to get started on your wonderful shopping holiday with only just under three hours between London and Faro airport. Transfer your mind to soothing thoughts of retail therapy while your pilot delivers you to your destination!

Lewis Andrews

Leave yourself plenty of time to peruse this popular treasure as there are no limits to what you could find! Whether you’re after a chilled but chic beach look, a glammed-up night out outfit or even a summer wardrobe for the kids, Lewis Andrews has got it all. This beautiful boutique carries stunning jewellery, hats and sunglasses too, so you can even accessorise your new look.

Antonio Manuel

Try something a little different at this concept store which celebrates international fashion. Be enchanted by the very best labels the world has to offer, including Armani, Hugo Boss and Ralph Lauren. Truly treat yourself and pick out a new feel-good outfit from the dress and shoes down to the purse and earrings. Male travellers will love this star-studded boutique too as they can filter through crisp designer shirts and pristinely shined shoes.


On a different side of the retail spectrum, Loulé is the most underrated and underappreciated gypsy market in the Algarve. Often missed by tourists, the shopping here is like no other. The vibrant and eclectic atmosphere makes for an exciting and unique shopping experience while you admire the fantastic, eye-catching curios for sale. Purchase your artisan products and local specialities as souvenirs to remind you of your travels and take in the farmers market running alongside it to sample some national delicacies.

Porches Pottery

Lovers of high-quality and distinctive art will not be disappointed by Porches Pottery, home of beautiful hand-crafted ceramics. The artists who own this pottery were determined not to allow traditional and wonderful old crafts and artistic methods to be lost to the modern ‘plastic age’. It has become a cherished and famous institution in the Algarve, and its art is known and loved by many. Admire the artwork as it is being created and take home a little piece of Portugal as a true souvenir of your visit.

How to Get There

With flights leaving daily from the UK to Portugal, jump on the next flight to Faro airport! Transfer time to the Algarve is only a short 14 minutes, so there’s no excuse to delay your trip abroad. Ensure a smooth beginning to your retail-therapy holiday by pre-booking a convenient Faro airport transfer to drop you directly at your destination after your flight.

Get packing (although not too much!) for your relaxing retail retreat to sunny Faro and get excited about what wonders and curiosities await you there.
