Barreta Island, Faro Reviews - Write a Review

  • Stunning. A lovely walk around the whole island will last a few hours . The nature there is stunning.

  • Amazing island, beautiful beach and a great restaurant :)

  • Disappointing at best. A desert island with a restaurant on it?

  • Será a ilha mais bonita da Ria Formosa? Das mais bonitas certamente! Quem não conhece este pequeno paraíso não se vai arrepender de conhecer. O barco apanha-se nas portas do mar em Faro (5€ ida e 5€ a volta). A saber: só há na ilha um único restaurante pelo que é conveniente levar um snack para passar por lá o dia.

  • Niet helemaal verlaten zoals de naam doet vermoeden, maar wel heel erg mooi. Pluspunten: -lekker rustig (september) -mooi en schoon strand -vuurtoren -restaurantje -slechts 1 bewoner -helder water Minpunten: -steeds meer mensen gaan dit plekje ontdekken, dat houdt in dat het steeds ietsje drukker wordt...
