Porto de Recreio de Faro
The small harbour of Faro is situated on the park Jardim Manuel Bivar near the historical old town
The port of Faro, near the Jardim Manuel Bivar is only suitable for small boats as its proximity to the Algarve railway line limits the height for access to the berths. Access to Faro from the Atlantic Ocean is by an artifical shipping channel between the unhibited Ilha da Barreta and the Ilha da Culatra. The lighthouse (farol) on the western corner of the island. which guides shipping gives its name to the beach Praia do Farol.
