Take your time to wander in this fishing community and its small harbor or even enjoy a lovely meal in one of the local restaurants.

Back on board, learn about the clam farms and the oyster beds of Ria Formosa. You will witness the oyster pickers and shellfish farmers working on the tidal flats of the lagoon as your guide comments on one of the most important economic activities in Ria Formosa.

Continuing aboard the boat, you’ll learn about Hangares in Culatra Island and its historical importance in the anti-submarine defense during World War I. The next stop is on Farol Island. Here you may walk to the lighthouse in the small community of Farol, the southernmost beach in Portugal.

The last stop is on Ilha Deserta. Here you can enjoy a walk along its long white sandy seashores where you’ll find lots of beautiful and different sea shells.

Learn about the typical vegetation of this beautiful marshland area, classified as one of the most important wetland for birds in all of Portugal, before slowly cruising back to the town of Faro, enjoying spectacular views of this approaching city on the way.
