Faro SUP location
The meeting point is at the railway side of the Marina in Faro, in the parking lot just behind the two marina cafe’s.
No matter what the weather is doing, you can be assured of a nice easy start to your paddle boarding career in Faro Marina’s calm, glassy waters. Even when there is a stiff breeze out in the Ria Formosa, the marina is a protected and safe place to learn those first few moves required to stand up on a paddle board.
Paddle boarding is pretty easy, its just like riding a bike. You need a few pieces of expert instruction, a calm place to begin, a few guiding tips and you’re up on your feet within the hour.
Now you’re free to learn proper stroke technique to ensure you can paddle a little ways and then you could always be off on your first stand up paddle adventure. Algarve SUP offers sup adventures to hidden lakes (far from the crowds), to spectacular coastal caves below the inspiring ochre cliffs which are plastered all over the tourist brochures and out into the rich marine wonderland of the Ria Formosa.
However, firstly you need to master the basics of stand up paddle, and what better place to do it than in a calm protected area? Take your time and enjoy the peace and quiet that this small little haven almost in the center of Faro provides.
