  • It has a good variety of shops and a massive supermarket. There is a few little climbing frames for the kids. The food court could be better as it is mostly fast food. It really needs some authentic options.
  • Absolutely beautiful! Boat tour is a must! Spectacular bird life and interesting history associated
  • Great food and great service, Staff are friendly and very accommodating to your needs. A nicely run family business.
  • Absolutely fantastic. The markets, the people, the location. Come saturdays between 7am to 1pm to see the market at its full splendor, get fresh produce, souvenirs, cheap clothes, learn to paint, try some traditional sweets. Great place and time for any street photographer.
  • Miles of unspoiled beaches soft sand not many people used by the locals and Portuguese visitors.
