  • 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

  • Uma ilha que não me convenceu

  • 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
