The Autodromo Internacionale Algarve is situated a short 30 minute drive from the beautiful seaside resort of Portimao, where there is something for everyone. From stunning seaside vistas and an abundance of water sports, to mouth watering local delicacies, you will never be short of activities in this bustling seaside town.
Faro Airport is located approximately 80km from the circuit. International flights from all over the world serve this airport.
Portimao boasts a wide selection of water based activities, such as jet skiing, snorkelling, paddle boarding and dolphin watching. If you would like to explore the beautiful coast line you can also take a boat trip out to the hidden caves along the coast.
If staying on dry land is more your style, then there are plenty of mountain bike trails to try out, golf courses to sample or you could simply try your luck at the famous Portimao casino.
For those wanting to take in some local culture, a trip to the Portimao museum is a must, as is the Santa Caterina fortress and the Megalithic Monument of Alcalar.
The weather is very moderate in the Algarve in October, with average daytime temperatures in the low-mid 20s centigrade. This is a great time to visit and explore the region. Temperatures can drop in the evening, so we would recommend taking layers to ensure you are prepared for all eventualities.
