Ria Formosa - Portugal


The Ria Formosa lagoon, located in the Algarve, is a system of barrier islands that communicate with the sea through six inlets. Five of these inlets are natural and have mobility characteristics. The sixth is an artificial inlet that was opened with the purpose of allowing easier access to the port of Faro.

The Ria Formosa is also a designated Natural Park of over 170 km² and a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods. It is also classified as a Ramsar site.

The most important cities near the Ria Formosa are Tavira, Faro and Olhão.

It was considered one of the most beautiful parks in the Algarve, having a great function and a beautiful habitat.


 Among the natural and cultural values of the Ria Formosa Natural Park are:

  • Flora
  • Fauna
  • Human activities
  • Landscape
  • Cultural Patromónio

So if you want to discover the beatiful landscape of our Ria Formosa, come aboard on one of our cruises, and spend a lovely time sailing through the calm waters of the Algarvian Ria.
