Praia do Barril

A much attended beach by tourists, at the Natural Park of Ria Formosa. One may get there by a red mini-train that connects Pedras de El-Rei and the beach for 2€, which is a lovely ride. At the end of the trip, one views the white sand that stretches on to the horizon and the calm, warm water. The terraces on the beach were once tuna fishing installations, now reconverted. There are some quality restaurants nearby.
