Flight Information

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

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Faro airport to Pine Cliffs Resort, Praia da Falesia is approximately 35 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.
