The Algarve region
The Algarve is Portugal's most popular tourist region, for its beautiful beaches and warm waters, heated by the Gulf Stream. But while most people coming to the Algarve get off the plane at Faro and head for the spectacular bays and coves to the west, the long, sandy beaches to the east are much less well known.
This coastline falls within the Ria Formosa National Park, of great interest to nature-lovers, especially bird watchers. Development has been limited and crowds are easy to avoid. The estuary of the Formosa forms a series of islands, ilhas (Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira), essentially sand-spits with long, dune-backed beaches, behind which form mud flats, lagoons and salt marshes.
The Eastern Algarve is very different compared to the rugged beauty found west of Faro. Those tidal marshlands have a tranquil beauty and the small resorts along the coast have retained much of their character, looking today as they must have looked long ago. Here tourism blends in perfectly with local activities creating a relaxed way of life. There is a tinge of excitement, even romance, about those ferry or tiny boat trips to the ilhas, trips rewarded by superb, less crowded bathing beaches and warm waters. The houses are different too, in the main more modest and discreet although more opulent properies are appearing on the skyline. There are more characterful cottages, farmhouses and the local architecture is quite distinct.
Amongst the selection of many beautiful beaches this part of the Algarve has to offer, Fuzeta beach is a sure family favourite. Being only 0.5km from the villa, Fuzeta is easily reached and comprises a tidal river bordered with colourful fishing boats and pavement cafes. Fuzeta has all amenities including traditional Portuguese restaurants, pubs, café shops and shops. Moncarapacho and the hills lie north of the villa. Roman remains can be visited in the nearby village of Estoi. Large water fun parks are encountered on the main road towards west Algarve, about 60 minutes away. Take the train and visit all the beautiful places the Eastern Algarve has to offer, including the towns of Tavira, Olhao and Faro.
