TAP Portugal  


Turn towards the sea and discover the island of Faro. In Culatra there are seamen and their beach seems more like a natural haven with colorful fishing boats. Farol (Lighthouse) Island located in Culatra, counterbalances with the large urban settlement having a long sandy beach. The Deserta Island is the least crowded and best preserved in the Algarve region.

To begin the journey to the Faro islands, the Cais da Porta Nova, located in the Comandante Francisco Manuel Street, is the best starting point. From there taxis depart towards the islands that surround Ria Formosa - Farol, Culatra and Deserta - all certified with the Blue Flag in 2010. The flora of the dunes and the numerous species of birds unite with the warm, calm waters of these islands. From the Trade Pier in Faro there is another destination: Faro Beach. In addition to this extensive beach, you have great conditions for water sports practice such as surfing or windsurfing. A visit to the Farol Island must be part of this itinerary. Schedule a trip to the lighthouse, which offers a fantastic view over the entire length of the island, as well as the urban center of the cities of Olhão and Faro.
