    The coastal area of Faro is characterized by its sandy bottom. Our dive sites are based on rock formations, wrecks and artificial reefs that extend from the the Farol Island to Vale de Lobo. The water temperature in our dive sites varies between 14 and 22 degrees Celsius, which recommends the use of a 7mm wetsuit. The average visibility is situated within 6 meters, often reaching 10 meters.
