We cross the channels of the Ria Formosa Natural Park (with 2 island stops).

1st STOP – Deserta Island, 45 minutes to enjoy 11 km of beach, is the most southern point in Portugal

2nd STOP – Farol Island, 45 minutes on the island, where you can visit the village around the lighthouse and see “Cabo de Santa Maria”.

Finally, we return to Faro, with a different landscape from the Natural Park because due to the difference in tides the view changes.
