What you'll do

We will meet in a parking lot next to the access to Faro Island, the roundabout with a crab. Then we will begin our journey, where we will go through the most inland and rural part of the ria, where it is possible to see several bird species and have a feeling of peace and expetacular calm. Then we will cross to the island of Faro, where we will have the opportunity to know some of the most beautiful beaches of this area of ancient fishermen. This route has an extension of approximately 9Km, which corresponds at least to 3h30 with some stops to see the view, take pictures, eat and if you want, take a dive or explore some areas better.
Other things to note
Near the roundabout with a crab there is a large car park where you can leave the car. If you have no way to get around, we can arrange to give you a rid.

Where you'll be

We will meet in a parking lot next to the access to Faro Island, the roundabout with a crab. Afterwards we will walk along old trails used by fishermen and the island of Faro, which already has some kind of urbanization, but worth quite the beaches.

We spent more than three hours walking with Ana and Bernardo along the lagoon and on the beach. They gave us insights into details of Ria Formosa, Algarve in general, life in Portugal, current topics in portuguese society, as well as nature we passed. A very good experience which we highly recommend.

Bellissima esperienza in cui Ana e Bernardo, in modo molto preparato, appassionato e, al tempo stesso, naturale e familiare, ci hanno guidati in una passeggiata nella riserva di Ria Formosa. Prima parte lungo un sentiero in laguna, seconda parte lungo l'oceano in spiaggia e, infine, attraversando un villaggio tradizionale di pescatori. Interessante dialogo critico sullo sviluppo sostenibile del Portogallo. La consiglio assolutamente, anche a chi ha bambini (noi siamo andati con bimbo di 6 anni abituato a camminare e bimba di 2 che, in parte a camminato, in parte é stata nel marsupio baby carrier). Luogo incantevole, persone che siamo stato felici di conoscere e che speriamo di incontrare di nuovo. Muyto obrigada, Ana e Bernardo!

Bernardo und Ana haben uns auf dem Parkplatz sehr warmherzig empfangen und boten uns gleich genügend Wasser an. Da Bernardo ein ausgezeichnetes und gut verständliches Englisch spricht, war die Kommunikation mit ihm über die ganze Tour unterhaltend und bereichernd. Beide kennen das Gebiet schon seit ihrer Kindheit gut und wussten viel über die Natur und die Algarve allgemein zu berichten. Die Wanderung erfolgt über Stege, Wanderwege und zu einem grossen Teil auch durch den Sand vom Strand entlang dem Atlantik und schlussendlich durch ein idyllisches Fischerdorf, das auch einen Einblick in die Welt der einfachen Bevölkerung vermittelte. Unsere ganze Gruppe von 6 Personen war von der Tour und den Guides Bernardo und Ana sehr begeistert. Wir empfehlen diese Tour allen, die sich für die Natur und die Tierwelt der Algarve interessieren. Da wir auf dieser Tour auch viel Persönliches von den Tourleitern erfahren haben, haben wir uns am Schluss von Freunden verabschiedet, die wir bei einer anderen Gelegenheit gerne wieder treffen würden.

Der Ausflug mit den beiden war wirklich schön. Wir waren 5 Personen und haben die Wanderung sehr genossen. Die Tour hat ca 3 Stunden gedauert, je nachdem wie schnell man geht. Der Rückweg ging an einem kilometerlangen Strand zurück und bei den einheimischen Fischern vorbei. Bermardo hat uns sehr viel über diese Fischer erzählt und es war sehr interresant. Wir können das nur jedem empfehlen, denn ohne diese Wanderung hätten wir nicht so viel über dieses Gebieterfahren. Vielen Dank nochmal ihr 2. Es war super!!

Superbe moment partagé avec Ana et Bernardo. Nous avons pu découvrir de magnifiques endroits, goûter à de petites douceurs locales et échanger sur la culture portugaise avec nos très gentils guides. Nos filles de 8 et 5 ans étaient également ravies de cette balade. Encore merci Ana et Bernardo!

This was a wonderful experience! Got to experience a quiet- a bit more hidden from tourist- trail which we can all appreciate. The hosts were incredibly friendly and informational as well, especially if you like nature.
