One of the few islands to be uncrowded even during summer season, the Culatra Island homes a village filled with tiny shops, a few restaurants and a beautiful beach perfect for anyone who want to escape Faro’s hustle-bustle.

Culatra Island, Faro Reviews

  • Quiet little fishing village . Lots of interesting things to photograph

  • Very nice place to visit with an awesome beach on the coast towards south. To reach there you need catch the regular ferry (30min) and after that walk for about 15 min but it worths the effort to see the natural beauty of Algarve. On the first saturday of august there is the big event that is the island party day with a big night show with a lot of popular music. On August, every saturday there is a similar but smaller party.

  • Wonderful place... magic place

  • È una bella spiaggia grande e poco affollata che si affaccia su un pittoresco villaggio di pescatori.Ci si arriva con un traghetto che parte da Faro. Merita sicuramente una visita

  • Superbe plage à découvrir pour les motivés (un bateau toutes les deux heures et 20-25 bonnes minutes de marche pour accéder à la plage)... Personnellement, je trouve que ça vaut vraiment le coup pour passer un bon moment dans un lieu qui n'est pas surpeuplé.
