Certainly, lying on a deck chair on a deserted island with a cocktail in your hand is an experience that is part of your dreams. As such, Animaris invites you to turn that dream into reality.The Desert Island, in Faro, is one of the islands that protects the Ria Formosa from the impact of the ocean. It is one of the greatest natural treasures of the Algarve that has been maintained in its purest and wildeststate. It has an extension of 11 km of white sand and the only relevant building built is the Estaminé Restaurant.The warm and crystal clear waters invite you for a dip. Take the time to relax and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds the conceded area on the beach to Animaris who also provide deck chairs and awnings for your comfort. Away from the hustle and bustle that characterizes the Algarvian beaches during the bathing seasons; on the Desert Island you will always find the space and tranquillity to enjoy your privacy.The practise of non-motorized nautical sports and the wooden gangway around the Island that leads up to the southernmost point of Portugal (Cape of Santa Maria) are other options that we offer our visitors.We recommend that you start your day with a boat tour through the Ria Formosa channels. When you arrive at the Ilha Deserta settle in comfortably under the shade of an awning and enjoy the beach. At lunch time delight yourself with grilled scaled bass accompanied by a magnificent Algarvian wine at the Estaminé Restaurant. Save some time to try out the nautical sports that we have for you. « less
