2. From Olhão: Ria Formosa Sunset Tour

After boarding your boat, head out into the sheltered waters of Ria Formosa. Depending on the season you will get to discover one of two islands. In May, stop on Armona Island and drink a coffee on the beach or take a swim and explore the island. From May to September your first stop will be at Praia Deserta, one of the most pristine beaches in the Algarve. From the beach, head to the village of Ilha da Armona and enjoy a refreshing drink while you contemplate the amazing views. The final stop on your tour is at a deserted beach on Culatra Island, a small community of 1000 people that is to be a sustainability project by 2030. Here you can relax and, in summer, enjoy some swimming. After about 40 minutes to enjoy the beach and the sunset, you'll board your boat for the return trip to Olhão.

Long tour in a small boat in a small group of 9, very interesting and friendly, especially with a native like Guillermo who knows everyone on the island! Natural landscape, exotic, and magnificent sunset, thank you very much I recommend! Thanks to Carlos for his responsiveness and sympathy too!

Fantastic experience, both islands were great. Def take a couple of beers with you to sit on the deserted beach and watch the sunset!! I just wish we had more time on the 1st island to swim and grab a drink.

Although the weather didn't fully worked out, the trip was quite nice and interesting. Carlos is also a great guide. Highly recommended.

Great boat ride, very informative and beautiful views. Island was beautiful with many seashells would highly recommend.

We had a great tour with Carlos, who actually grew up on Culatra Island. Highly recommend!
