In the afternoon, we will meet at the Olhão pier for a 3-hour boat trip. Live a great experience in the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

Great day trip!

We really enjoyed our boat trip around Ria Formosa. We visited 3 beautiful parts of the islands. The first had the beautiful lighthouse and because we got there early it was very quiet. Along the way, our guide (Carlos) told many stories about the area and also suggested us a local, more remote place to have lunch during our 2nd stop. At the third stop we saw some beautiful beaches with some nice sandbanks for the kids to explore. All in all a great way to spend a day around the Ria Formosa.
