This could be so much better if service was improved. Fun for the kinds but only tolerable for adults. However, only option around for water sports.

Fantastic way to spend the day. Can do a half day or full day activity with a tutor in a group or one to one. €40 for half day. Peddalos €20 and a splashboat that has a water pistol €30 for 1/2 hr. Or you can just lie on the beach and children paddle or swim on the lake.

In between "The Shack" and "Casa do Lago" eateries.

A 2 hour ride with Magda through this beautiful natural park from 5pm to 7pm in the cooler part of the day... A lovely way to spend the evening seeing the many birds, the salt pans, the views and all at a gentle pace - particularly as we're not regular cyclists!
Suitable for all ages and experience ... And Magda was lovely pointing out things of interest along the way. Follow this up with a refreshing drink of home made lemonade with ginger and mint at 'The Shack' as you watch the sun go down.

Excellent fun for all ages, abilities and tastes. The man made beach is small but perfect. Located next to Casa Do Lago or the Shack means that you can have casual snacks or a meal at lunch. We did panel boarding and pedalo which were great fun for adults and kids. it wasn't busy when we were there so the time restrictions were relaxed so the hires proved good value. Staff are well informed and friendly. Enough to do here to take up 2 / 3 days of your holiday if you wanted.

We really enjoyed the inflatable course. The kids had a ball as did the adults. Although it said it was from 6yrs, they found it a bit difficult so would say from 8 upwards was more suitable. Also rented a pedalo which was fun. The lagoon is very very salty.
Lots of facilities nearby, toilets etc. Nice because not as windy as the beach.
