On Ilha Deserta it is the ideal place to swim in the wild nature of this island, or go for a walk along the coast! Without a doubt one of the best places in the Ria Formosa!

The Lighthouse, located on Culatra Island, is a charming village that leaves anyone in love.

Superb experience, magnificent little 6 hour cruise punctuated with interesting stops. The restaurant recommended by our guide Ricardo is simply excellent. Everything is done in a good mood and without the stress of time. Many thanks to Ricardo for his good humor, his explanations and his advice. We highly recommend this little “trip” full of simplicity and authenticity.
Farol Island

Group island tour

I went with Odyssey Tours on my solo trip to Olhão and I had a lovely experience. There was enough time to spend on each island. The captain was amazing, spoke 3 different languages and good rapport with everyone. Would definitely recommend.
Farol Island

A great day

This was a really great tour. Our guide Claudio was very knowledgeable and managed the tour very well. We visited the three islands - having lunch on the second island. So great to see this side of life for those who live and work in Ria Formosa. We had a really great day. 🚤 🌞 🍷
