We really enjoyed the whole experience despite having not much wind that day. David, our skipper, was very informative and could describe most of the birds in French and English (We are... More

We tried out the beginners sailing course of 20 hours, which we split into 2 full days (8 hours each) and one half day (4 hours). Despite not much wind (in the mornings) we had three great days, with our instructor David being very informative not only about sailing but also about the Ria Formosa in general. It was good...

Splendid morning out with the kids. Tucked out the way behind the bus depot (!) it took moments to be paddling away under the bridge out into the beautiful Rio Famosa. 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...
