A trip through the most amazing corners of the Algarve. Walk along the cliff of the Seven Hanging Valleys, the best hiking route in Europe according to the European Best Destinations Organization: rocky mountains, small coves with crystal clear waters and deep caves between the beach of Vale Centeanes and Albandeira. Sailboat route along the East Coast of the Algarve to Praia Verde, a sea of dunes and large areas of pine forests. The Ria Formosa Natural Park, chosen as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal: long arms of sand and sea to sail in Kayak, forests, islands, marshes, salt flats, beaches and dunes with exceptional biological diversity. Olhao seafaring, Culatra Island and Farol: virgin beaches and small fishing villages set on fine white sand. Launch in a spectacular zip line over the Guadiana River to Alcoutim, a placid little village on a hill that falls into the same river. This is Faro del Sur in the Algarve!

Board walk in very poor condition, trip hazards, boards missing / broken, fire damaged and disgracefully maintained. Promenade littered with dog dirt as was the beach, keep your eyes down at all times. Can this be a Blue Flag beach, really? Go to Isla Islanitilla instead, absolutely superior.

Massive beach that goes on forever, the tide is unusual as it comes in at angles on different parts of the beach, so be careful where you sit, seaweed is crispy and once the tide had abetted can be in abundance in places, although not everywhere. watch out for jellyfish that have been stranded by the tide, hey still have there sting so do not touch. Shells are plenty, the water is inviting but be mindful of the under current in places. Although can appear slightly windy at times remember to cover up.

We are staying here for 5 months . The beach is stunning ..full of shells and goes on for miles . However when there is a high tide all the plastic is washed up onto the end of the beach and shows how much is in the ocean. The broken walkway could be great but locals let their dog ..caca perro 💩all over it . No embarrassment just let them do it . They also leave rubbish on the beach as they can’t be bothered to take it to a bin ! The culture here is leave rubbish all over the streets , the beach etc and who cares if there is dog poo all over the streets and boardwalk . I am shocked as I’ve travelled over a large part of Spain and it’s the dirtiest town we’ve seen. Why do the residents not care? Do they not mind their kids standing in the caca perro ? The sea and beach are so beautiful such a waste of a fabulous coastline . Ayamonte is far superior . Portugal’s Vila real was similar a few years ago but they have cleaned up their act . Come on the mayor of Isla do something about your very dirty town ! Change the locals culture of thinking this is acceptable . I have family coming to stay and I’m embarrased at the state of this town.

Accessed from a wooden bridge the beaches go on for miles. They are covered in a mosaic of sea shells . The sea is warm and very shallow for some distance which make it safe for medium ability swimmers, although I found the tide had quite a lot of drag . So watch your kids. The lagoon behind the dunes is great to watch the local guys cockle and muscle fishing. I would say well worth the visit .
