  • Apr! s the little market on Saturday mornings in OLHAO (small but gives an idea of the local atmosphere), reserve natural very beautiful endroitx by time, and others a little left fallow, but not seen to waste. nice thanks to the strength of the tide mill. not a lot of different birds but very pleasant walk and nice restaurants right next door who smell good grilled sardines. Scouts are staying in tents and discovered the reserve with their guides. Entrance €2,50 Toilet inside.

  • Beautiful protected nature area, with excellent opportunities to see lots of different animals. There is a small entrance fee, but it is certainly worth the price. Be aware that it can be difficult to find shade along the way so remember hat and plenty of water
  • It's a beautiful natural protected area, starting in Quinta do Lago and extended until Cacela Velha. Wonderful chrystal-water beaches. Opportunities for water sports practice, watching native fauna and flora, relaxing and sightseeing.
  • Unique natural wildlife ecosystem. Beautiful estuary like landscapes.
  • Natural beauty, from farol island to.the ihla deserta, you have to visit this in faro
  • Amazing place. Go for a walk early morning or late afternoon to enjoy the views. Bring binoculars for some birdwatching.
