You can catch a boat to the islands which make up the Ria Formosa nature reserve. The reserve has an educational centre where you can see wildfowl, such as the sultana hen, or learn how the Portuguese water dog has been saved from extinction.
The town of Faro itself is an interesting place, due to its historic heritage and its liveliness, very much related to the constant arrival of tourists from all corners of the world. You may even get a chance to speak your own language.
