Detailed description

A boat trip from Olhão for sunset and dinner in the restaurant

If you are surrounded by hills full of bushes and inviting hiking trails on a cliff over a hidden bay, where perhaps you are still waiting to explore a mysterious grotto, you are probably standing between the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains in the north of the fantastic Algarve. This holidaymakers' paradise in the south of Portugal is a fascinating combination of picturesque landscape panoramas, Portuguese culture and cuisine and a wide variety of tourist activities to get to know all aspects of this area on holiday.

Starting from Olhão near Faro, this boat tour takes you in a luxurious ship gliding over the waves into the lagoons of Ria Formosa National Park, along the many water channels around the islands. The Ria Formosa in Portugal is one of the 7 Portuguese natural wonders. If you admire the impressive biodiversity of the native flora and fauna, but also the fact that these crystal clear lagoons with their densely overgrown shores are a permanent resting place for many migratory birds, you can gather your strength for the onward flight. The local salt works help many birds to supplement their diet. But Ria Formosa salt is also an exotic enrichment for your own kitchen. The boat tour from Olhão makes a first stop at the Desertas Islands. Anchoring in front of this sandy island you can swim and snorkel to your heart's content for about an hour. You will experience the local fish and accompany them in their natural habitat as guests in their everyday life. The boat tour in the Algarve continues the journey with you on board to Culatra Island, a larger island where you stop at a local restaurant and enjoy a grilled dinner with fresh fish or grilled meat and salads, potatoes and a drink. Afterwards we return on board where we say goodbye to the setting sun with a glass of sparkling wine and the 4-hour boat tour from Olhão ends there again.
