Very nice walk. Very punctual and Fernando the very good guide. It should be mandatory to wear a mask inside the boat, only the guide wore it, it is not possible to keep a safety distance
8 Estefania

Sail along the Algarve coast to the islands of Deserta and Farol, two incredible natural paradises located in this area of southern Portugal.

Deserta and Farol Islands Cruise

We'll meet the guide at the port of Faro. From here we'll sail off in a boat to the islands of Deserta and Farol on a pleasant journey through one of the most beautiful natural spaces in Portugal.

We'll sail the waters of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, included on the list of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. We'll marvel at incredible wildlife such as flamingos, storks or herons as we cruise.

Our first stop will be Farol Island. Here you'll have an hour of free time to explore its picturesque streets, go for a swim on the beach or visit the famous lighthouse the island is named after.

We'll then continue the tour to the nearby Deserta Island to discover the soft white sand of its paradisiacal beaches. After enjoying about 30 minutes of free time on this island, we'll return to the port of Faro.
