The only restaurant located on the promenade (beach side). A lot of Portuguese people come here for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is not cosy, but it is good, staff are friendly. Especially in September when you can have the Sapateira (crab) for 10,60€

This place could have been best treated. The trail to it is bad and the lighthouse on itself is nothing special, being even graffitied and decayed. The only good thing about it is the view over the bay

Driving through Farol is a treat for the eyes alone! Very charming and slow paced compared to the larger cities! Exquisite place to purchase beautiful ceramics keepsakes.

this is such a nice place to watch the waves, and the surrounding area, although, I am sure it's nicer when it's not as cold as in december.
