Had a very good experience on the Island, especially the beach side. Need to bring your own food and water as there is only one restaurant located on the Island.

for €10 return to get to spend couple of hours on pretty much empty island with amazing beach. make sure you take water and snacks as there’s no shops and only one expensive restaurant. snack bar still closed in May

Departure from just along the promenade west of the Porto de Faro. Using Google Maps look for "Faro ferry" or "Estacao Faro"
