Barreta Island, Faro Reviews

  • Get the boat from Faro at 1130 and prepare to spend the day on the island. You can walk all round it on the boardwalk and you can have lunch in the restaurant, cheap or expensive, swim, sunbathe (they rent umbrellas and loungers but take a towel) and return on the 4.30 boat all for a very reasonable outlay.

  • 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?

  • Payer 20euros aller retour avec un “speed bateau” pour aller voir une île où il n’y a vraiment pas grand chose à voir. Perte de temps total je trouve qu’il a des choses beaucoup plus intéressante à voir. Oui c’est une île déserte mais la plage c’est la même que le sud en France pour le coup! Nous avons marché tout le tour de l’île rien de très passionnant
