2024 Escapade: A journeying through the Ria Formosa’s beauty. Advancing into a new year presents the opportunity to discover new opportunities. Reigniting your passion for adventure could be the perfect start to 2024 when you explore the treasured realm of Ria Formosa in all its natural beauty.
For those who are yet to frequent Ria Formosa, it is a natural lagoon system located in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. It is a unique coastal landscape characterised by a scenic view of barrier islands, salt marshes, tidal flats, and channels stretched across 60km of the Algarve’s stunning coast between the Ancão Peninsula and Manta Rota.
Those who are lucky enough to visit or even reside close to its rich fauna, often compliment Ria Formosa as Portugal’s most stunning natural landmark.
For visitors who are keen to spot wildlife in their natural habitat, this 11,000 hectares is home to countless species of fish, crustaceans, birds, and mammals that have long been residents since Ria Formosa’s inauguration in 1987. Perfect for bird-watching and species of birds in their migration season.
Nonetheless, the lagoons and waterways of Ria Formosa are closely protected to preserve fragile ecosystems and ensure sustainability is always considered at every touch point for all nature to enjoy and tourists to capture this idyllic land and understand its continued importance.
There are many ways to discover the Ria Formosa and its islands in all their glory, the best by far is to explore by boat. While you can board a ferry from Faro or Olhão; rent a canoe, or stumble across a boat tour advertised on the docks. Regency Luxury Property recommends a professional boat tour for a more genuine and guided experience.
From full-day to half-day charters, we can recommend local companies who can give you a tour of Ria Formosa, the fabulous surrounding islands, and the perfect spot to see your favoured species. Who knows, you might even be lucky enough to see some Dolphins swim alongside your vessel. 2024 Escapade: A Journeying Through The Ria Formosa’s Beauty
