What people are saying about Ria Formosa

Superb day out, knowledgeable guide, beautiful scenery, superb lunch

This is without doubt one of the best excursions we have ever done, the Ria Formosa National Park is amazing and on a sunny November day the colours were amazing (the guide said the colours are actually better at this time of the year). Each of the islands we visited were quite different. So I say definitely do this trip but obviously try to plan the trip on the best day weather-wise. The only slight thing to be aware of is if you booked your tickets online the address given is not exactly right. If you go to the meeting point given from the marina area (Hotel Faro) you need to go another 200 metres approx to where there is a jetty which cannot be seen from the given meeting point.

This was a great way to experience the Ria Formosa!!

We had a great tour with Ricardo. He explained all about the area and really took the time to ensure that he explained everything. Really loved this tour as we had limited time in Faro and it was a great way to experience the Tia Formosa and the beautiful weather

Amazing place, great staff, all in one a MUST SEE once you are in Faro

The reservation was fast,once on the spot I just show the confirmation number and they printed the ticket for me. Ilha Deserta itself it's amazing...in September it was really like a dessert, which means almost nobody there. If you are looking for a relaxing day on the beach with cristal clear water and white sand, this is your spot! The ride on the catamaran was also an atraction and the staff was very nice, even waited for my friend few minutes as she couldn't find the starting point. Ps: the docking place it's behind the actual port, in front of old city walls. Ps2: Note- there is no shops on the island so take water and all you need. There is a restaurant there ( the only building in the island) but it's a bit pricy, which is understandable considering the location, behind the restaurant there is a snack bar which has more economical version.

Excellent value for a 45 minute trip each way

Worth a visit. Specatular scenery and beaches. Don't forget an umbrella and drinks if going in the Summer. Must be amazing in the spring with all the wild flowers.
