Faro in Algarve

Faro is the gateway to the amazing Ria Formosa natural park, a beautiful expanse of lagoons, sandbanks, small islands and translucent water. Rich in birdlife, fauna and flora, the Ria Formosa is well worth discovering. There are several boat trips available from Faro, including full and half day trips and hop-on hop-off Ria Formosa island trips.
