Arrived at the blue jetty after walking from Cavalero and frantically called up the ferry rather than face an added 3 miles via the bridge. We beat the closing time 2 minutes. So grateful to see that ferry sailing to collect us.

By boat is the only way you'll cross over to Furnas beach on the south side of Mira river. We had a very nice ride with the boat's pet dog Vigia and a great morning at the beach. Very recommended!

Excellent trip on the river with our party of four. The 6:00 pm trip was very peaceful. We very much enjoyed our bottle of wine and great conversation with our guide.
