From Faro airport on the N125

How easy it to get on the N125 heading east when coming out of Faro airport?

Is it well signposted?

I know my Sat-Nav will automatically try to guide me to the A22 but I want to go on the N125

Yes it's well signposted. Follow directions towards Olhão

Come out of the airport and after about a mile turn off that road towards Faro centre.

There is a local bypass of Faro under construction, but not open yet all the way so as far as I know.

So for the time being you must first head towards Faro city centre for about another mile or so along the N125 then turn left onto a dual carriageway (still the N125) shortly after passing the Forum Algarve shoppng centre.

If you like, use Google maps http://maps.google.com/ to familiarize yourself. The road through Faro is well signposted.

On Google maps you can also map out your route by clicking on 'get directions' and with 'show options' you can click 'avoid highways/avoid toll'.

Google shows you that you could drive from the airport up north, to Sao Bras and then continue to Alcoutim. Although Google maps says it's 10 min. shorter than following the EN125 you should know that it's a slow and winding road (but scenic!). Maybe one day you'd like to try.

Thanks for the response. I usually use AA route planner and I did not know I could plan a journey with Google maps.
