Amazing islands with natural and salvage beaches. You need to take a boat taxi and choose which island you want to go so they come and pick you up whenever you scheduled. There is nothing but nature on these islands so you want to take very cold drinks and food. I suggest to go there between march and the beg,... More

We visited the village of Fuseta in Dec 2016. We visited the Ilha da Fuseta for 4 hours on one of our days there. We took a water taxi to and from the island, which cost only €10 return. We walked from end to end and sat in the sandy dunes for lunch (packed by ourselves - there are no... More

This is the ultimo Beach. First the small beach ferry, that goes very often. Then a quiet, very long Beach with golden sand, very little people - if you walk away 200 meters meters - you will be almost alone. Some very small places to have a beer and something simple to eat - that is everything you need!

worth a day trip to this island, most of the properties are owned by people who reside on the mainland and only come during the month of August, many are available to rent. great little bars,places to eat beachside. and the beaches are clean and safe.

Fuseta is a simple land of simple people where you can go everywhere on foot, take a boat to the Island or go to the nearest beach. Fuseta is a land where the water is warm and the sand is white and clean, where we are always greeted with a smile, where the fish and the seafood are very fresh... More

Part of the 60km natural sand dune sea defences the beach was beautiful and very end of season. No facilities at the Fuseta end of the island so take plenty to drink. A good place to chill.

This was a favourite of ours on a recent holiday to Olhao. We could get the train from Olhao and after about a 15 minute walk, you could either stay on the nearest beach (which got more crowded) or get the water taxi to the other side of the island where there were more sunbeds and space. Some lovely beach... More
