  • 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.
