Our lovely guide Fernando delivered an educational tour on the local bird and marine life. We stopped on a sand bank for a rest and a little swim. We... More

We chose to do a bird watching tour as part of a package with our accommodation at Herdade da Corte. As bird watching is not one of our hobbies, the nature park is not a place we would normally have chosen to visit. It turned out to be a stroke of brilliance though as we spent 3 hours under the...
