3 Hour Ria Formosa Sailing Trip From Faro
Enjoy the pleasure of sailing in a magnificent place. Visit the Ria Formosa salt marsh in the Algarve in Portugal, covering an area of about 18,400 hectares along 60 kilometres from the river Ancão to the beach of Manta Rota.
In 1978, it was established as a nature reserve and at the end of 1987, it became a natural park. Most of its area corresponds to the lagoon system of the Ria Formosa, composed of islands and sandy peninsulas arranged parallel to the coast, protecting a lagoon.
At the park, discover the natural habitat of several rare species such as the common cayman, the flamingo and the round-winged eagle.
Another inhabitant of the park, almost extinct in Europe, is the chameleon. Go deep inside this ecosystem, while enjoying the pleasure of sailing. If you like, the skipper will teach and mentor you on how to perform some of the sailing tasks, so you can feel like part of the crew.
Choose your itinerary, and if you would like to, stop at some of the barrier islands.
