Flight Information

Flights from the UK to the Algarve take around 2 hours 40 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Faro airport to Olhos d' Agua is approximately 40 minutes.

When to go

Summers in the Algarve get pretty scorching, so beach-goers can expect the mercury to top 30°C in July and August. The shoulder months of April, May and October stay at a pleasantly toasty low 20s, and even in winter, things rarely drop below 15°C – ideal for year-round golfers.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Portugal.


A service charge won’t typically be added to your restaurant bill in the Algarve, so it’s common to leave a tip of around 10% of the bill. The same goes for taxi drivers – aim for 10% or round up your fare to the nearest euro. Tipping is not expected for bar staff, hotel porters or maids, although a euro or two would be appreciated for excellent service.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Portugal is Portuguese. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
