The ideal tour to get to know a lot about the Ria Formosa, and visit the island of Culatra, a beautiful fishing community that inhabits about 1000 people all year round, which will be an island producing its own energy by 2030! The houses are typical and traditions and customs predominate, a unique place in the world!

There are several infrastructures and restaurants where you will have the opportunity to taste and delight yourself with typical dishes from traditional restaurants. With the possibility of booking a table or having a Picnic, there are several options to choose from!

Then we will enjoy, for many, the best deserted beach in the Algarve, which is located at the end of Culatra Island, which separates the dark blue of the Atlantic Ocean and the clear blue of the Ria Formosa, where you will have the opportunity to dive, swim and take unique photos! A true paradise!

In case it is out of season , we will visit the magnificent Ilha da Armona , where we will stop around 1h00 to explore the island !

Amazing trip which is great to experience a really nice part of the Algarve. Great Guide who is really nice and explains many different and interesting things on the tour. So you also learn about nature and history. Also you have free time at the beach and on island which is also great. All in all a wonderfull experience which I would recommend to everyone visiting the Algarve.

Absolutely beautiful. Perfect for us as a couple. The desert beach was deserted (no pun intended XD). Very friendly and helpful staff. Great value for money.
Great time! A must do!

This was an amazing experience! A must do when in Faro. Visiting the different beaches was great, the little towns were super pretty, the beaches deserted and the crew did a great job in making us feel welcome. Thank you for an awesome time! Had a fun time and met some great people!
