From Faro: 3-Hour Boat Tour To Deserta Island And Farol Island

Your 3-hour boat trip to the islands of Ria Formosa starts in Faro, where you'll board on our comfortable catamaran. Get ready to explore the Ria Formosa National Park with a local guide that is passionate about the region, and to visit the Deserta Island and Farol Island.

We depart from Faro, sailing slowly through the channels of the Ria Formosa to fully enjoy the beautiful landscape and the many different bird species. Along the tour we will see birds like the Grey Heron, the White Stork and many other birds that use this area as a feeding habitat.

As we approach the islands and beaches we see the lighthouse of the Culatra Island where we make our first stop. Looking around one can observe the hard work of the people in the oysters and clams farms. Looking towards the ocean you will see one of the most important sea entrances of the Ria Formosa.

Our first stop is the (Lighthouse) Farol Island. Here you can enjoy a walk around the streets of this small but friendly community. When passing by the lighthouse, go on until the very end to admire an extensive beach of fine white sand washed by calm warm waters, here lies the most southern point of Portugal – the Santa Maria Cape.

We leave the Farol Island and make our second stop at the Deserta Island. This island is also known as Barreta Island. In this second stop you can choose to explore the fauna and flora of the island along an easy walk or simply enjoy the sunshine and bath in the clear waters of the beach.

On the trip back to Faro be enchanted by one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal – the Ria Formosa.

  1. Tout simplement magique pour les amoureux de nature

    Tout simplement magnifique 3h00 pour découvrir le site naturel avec tous les oiseaux, et visite de l’île desserte ainsi que l’île farol, on vous dépose sur ces îles 1/2 h chaqu’une être surtout le couché du soleil c’est le paradis. Il vaut mieux prendre la sortie de 15h00 pour rentrer avec ce couché il fait compter 25€ par personne sa vos le détour.

  2. Passé un super après-midi

    Très bonne accueil, notre guide Francesco était tout à fait génial , dans le bateau avec des anglais, américains, colombiens, eh il prenait le temps de nous expliquer tout en français, la visite était vraiment très bien et ça vaut le coup.

  3. Genial experiencia!!!

    Hicimos la ruta de 3 horas, donde visitamos ” Deserta Island y Farol Island”.
    Experiencia 100% recomendable, además nuestro guía (Pedro) fue muy amable con nosotros y nos iba explicando todas las curiosidades acerca del Parque Natural de Ria Formosa.

  4. 3h Catamaran trip

    We had really good time. Pedro was our tour guide with abundance of knowledge about the fauna that inhabites the area and easy to talk to on other topics. Very correct and friendly service. Thank you!

  5. Superbe !

    Nous avons passé 3h superbes ! Le guide parlait plusieurs langues ce qui a rendu la balade encore plus instructive. Escale sur l’île déserte et sur l’île Farol. Le bateau est très confortable et nous avons apprécié les petites couvertures qui nous ont été proposées la météo étant exceptionnellement mauvaise en ce mois de juin 2018. Très bon après midi. Le tarif est correct et justifié.

  6. Super balade

    Un tour de 3h qui vaut le détour, personnel qui parle le français, bateau hyper confortable, la visite commence par le parc naturel avec les explications du guide qui parle plusieures langues, après direction l’île déserte et on termine par l’île de Farol : paysages magnifiques…
    Nous avons passé un très bon moment.
    Le prix de 25 euros par personne est correct et nous avons trouvé le personnel très professionnel.

  7. Great boat trip with island stops

    We went on the 3hr Desert Island and Farol Tour. The boat trip was great and we were really happy we chose it! The boat driver was really knowledgable on the birds, wildlife and ecology of the Ria Formosa National Park. He made lots of short stops to explain what birds and crabs we were looking at. We stopped for 0.5hrs on the deserted island and for 1hr on the island of Farol which gave us enough time for a walk about and to get something to eat. Really happy we went on this tour. Good value for money for a 3hr boat trip. Highly recommend.

  8. Super! Grâce au guide!

    Avons réalisé une sortie de 3/4 d’heure dans le parc national et avons eu la chance d’être tout seul sur le bateau
    Merci à notre guide pour nous avoir fait partager sa passion et sa connaissance du milieu marin

  9. Très belle promenade

    Nous avons pris le bateau au départ d Olhão et nous avons navigué 3,5 heures et demi avec des escales sur les îles. C’était fabuleux et merci beaucoup à notre skipper Carlos qui a été super !!!! À faire
