Activity description

Discover the south of Portugal


The south of Portugal is full of surprises and wonderful places. Algarve located inPortugal is one of the most touristic destinations and is preferred by many travellers due to its good climate and beaches of fine sand and high quality.


Among its most attractive towns are Portimao, Tavira, Lagos, Albufeira, Sagres and Faro. You will also find beautiful natural landscapes and cliffs (Cabo de San Vicente) of great interest.



The natural park of Ria Formosa


The Natural Park of Ria Formosa is an impressive protected area with great biodiversity and a coastal lagoon with different islands, such as Deserta Island or Culatra Island. In total it covers 18,000 hectares, Cinca barrier islands and two peninsulas.


It represents a unique space with a rich ecosystem composed of wetlands, dunes, salt pans and freshwater lagoons, where many species of birds live, such as the Purple Swamphen, the symbol of this Natural Park.



Boat trip along Ria Formosa


We offer you a boat trip to contemplate the waters of Olhão and the wonders of this natural space. All on board a comfortable boat of full coverage.


This journey of 3 and a half hours (approximately) will take you through the channels, islands and beaches of this fantastic Natural Park. Islands such as Armona or Culatra hide an important story about traditional fishing present in their fishing community and in their port.


Discover the fascinating biodiversity of this great ecosystem and other famous attractions such as the Olhão market and the tide mill of Quinta de Marim. Surround yourself with the typical vegetation of the estuaries of the ria and come to know one of the most important waterfowl wetlands in Portugal.


“The magic of the traditions of Algarve join with the landscape in a magnificent boat ride on the Ria Formosa”.
