2. From Faro: 2-Hour Guided Bird Watching Boat Trip

When you’re in Portugal make sure to be a part of this ecotourism experience that will take you through the spectacular nature of the Ria Formosa by boat. Come see why this region was elected one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal. Considered one of the most important wetlands for aquatic birds in Portugal, during the tour we observe birds like the White Stork, Little Egret and the Spoonbill. Waders are most abundant during winter, although birds like the Whimbrel, the Turnstone and the Grey Plover are a constant presence. The trip continues towards the islands of the Natural Park through oyster and clams farms. Here you will have the opportunity to see one of the most important economical activities in the Algarve and also very interesting species such as the black-tailed godwit, the oystercatcher and many others. During wintertime we often observe the sandwich tern and the greater flamingo. Towards the point where the lagoon meets the sea, we make a stop so you may enjoy this small paradise. During our trip back we will have many opportunities to observe other species while our boat sails calmly through the channels of this Natural Park in direction to the city of Faro.

If the weather is inviting...let's go swimming If the weather not good...lets make a short walk close to this beautiful lake, and touch the surround nature After the lake it's time to wake up......lets go play a very adventure off-rod drive claiming to the highest point. To realize the real beauty of this area, lets visit to the best look-out point in Algarve Portugal, featuring 960m high cliffs and breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean.

What people are saying about Albufeira - Olhos de Água, Algarve

Fabulous experience. It was cancelled the first time we turned up due to issues with wind levels/motor temp which was slightly frustrating as it was a bit of a trip for us from where we were staying, taxi costs etc. When we turned up the 2nd time all went smoothly and without issue. Brilliant experience seeing the sights over the cliffs and beach. Thank you

Great place to kill an hour or so. Choice of crazy or mini golf courses, or both if you want 2 rounds. Each hole has a shaded spot to wait your turn in and there's cool mist shot out underneath those areas for those hot days. Nice cafe onsite too. Recommended for a bit of fun.

INCREDIBLE!!! It was my dream come true & at a price I could afford. Our pilot was absolutely professional and I felt safe the entire time.

Great fun, did the crazy golf course. Definitely highly recommended

Absolutely brilliant time - staff very polite and helpful
