Praia da Ilha de Faro

It is an extensive stretch of sand, between the sea and the Ria Formosa, located about 9 km from Faro city. Access is by boat, from Faro, or by car, crossing the only existing bridge for this purpose, with alternating traffic, which generates long queues. The different constructions took away some natural beauty, but brought more animation and structures to serve the tourist in the summer. The sand is narrow and relatively uneven. It has excellent conditions for rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, sailing, etc.
