Take the first boat in the morning and prepare yourself to enjoy a lazy day at the Island. The beach is covered by relly clean white sand, and even though a lot of people go there, you can always manage to find a great spot to get a tan. I recommend taking some protection because the sun is unforgiving. Besides... More

Nice stretch of sand with some great bars. Semi-party vibe, but still relaxed enough to enjoy with kids.

Great day at a very clean beach! Ultra fine sand, great water temperature and nice bistros. Last but not least hot portugese women ;)

I went there with my wife and the dog. Fuzeta is a small town inside the Algarbe Region. The beach belongs to Ria Formosa (a Natural Reserve). We saw a lot of fish, crabs, mussels. Pure Life, just walking into The Ria, without wearing any goggles. Clear water. There is a boat to cross the Ria which takes you to... More

I've been going to this beach on the island for over a decade. Some years ago, the winter storms demolished a lot of the buildings, and POLIS programme, did the remainder. It's now even cleaner and organised. Short ferry boat trip from mainland. It's always been awarded the blue flag, which gives us a little extra peace of mind

A short boat trip from the harbour(€1.60 return). Find the island beach,clean with good facilities. A must when you visit Fuseta.

We have visited this beach many times over the years - even swam here one Christmas in the off-season. Reached by boat from a well-maintained jetty, a wooden walkway leads to the crest of the dunes where, in the Summer, beach thatched umbrellas shield you from the strongest midday sun. Take bottled water with you and spend a few hours... More

In the summer months, you can get there by public boat, for a litle more than 1 €, one way. But there are also water taxis. It's just a 5 min ride. You'll see neverending sand and almost any people at all (if you walk to the right), but you can also stay in a concession area, where there is... More

Went over on the ferry at 9.30 and returned at 12.30, walked for 3 hours and didn't meet a sole except a naked man! This must be the nicest beach I have ever been on in Portugal, even beats Falesia Beach. We were lucky in that the weather was gorgeous in mid October.
