We have taken the tour several times. Each year the tour is more developed and more options for tours are available. We stopped in at the factory store to buy cork which my wife uses to make purses etc. A roll of cork one meter ranges in price from 15-19 euros for the kind to be used in making purses. Some of the cork can cost up to 200 euros a meter. Friendly staff.

We found this shop by chance and were very happy. The vendor explained everything about the products (salt flowers, Chilly jelly, petiscada of mackerels, almond liquor and others) as well as their origin, production and use. And he did all of that with great passion...MoreThanks Jutta for taking time to write an excellent review on Tripadvisor. We are very grateful to our customers that give their important feed back.

After having visited the club in April 2015 we came back again in April 2016, this time as a group of 8 croquet players from Latvia. Bela Romao club is excellent place for a croquet holiday. Can only recommend for everybody who wants a relaxing stay and gourmet meals, as Sarah is a top class chef. Absolutely cozy place, rooms and kitchens well equipped, everything clean, hosts very friendly.
Already started to plan our next visit for 2017.

Mercado de Olhao

Reviewed By John A - Belfast, United Kingdom

The Gypsy Market, as our guide described it, was on Saturday morning, the first day of our stay in the Algarve so was worth visiting. The stalls of clothes, shoes and presents were all much cheaper than at home but, for me the highlight was the display of fruit, vegetables and fish.
The fish market had a much greater selection of fresh fish than we ever see at home but sells out quickly so an early start is recommend.

I stayed in Fuseta for 3 weeks in August 2015 and had a fantastic time with the folks at Your Algarve Adventure. Excellent professional instructors, personal coaching, the whole team very warm and welcoming and a great friendly and fun atmosphere. Beautiful Beaches with flat water lagoons one side and and the sea on the other. This part of the Ria Formosa natural park is a fantastic, unspoilt and uncrowded kitesurfing spot. I can't imagine a nicer place to learn how to kitesurf and will definitely come back to carry on learning!

Praia do Barril

Reviewed By Sc0ttishbill - Faro, Portugal

The beach is beautiful and very clean. I usually walk, but it is possible to go out on the little train which owes its existence to the tuna fishery of bygone days. Other reviewers have referred to the "anchor cemetery". This also is a relic of the times when tuna were caught and landed here and there is a museum within the buildings behind the beach which explains the network of nets, anchored to the sea floor, into which the fish were herded. It is well worth a visit. I find the restaurants less worthy of praise. You are a captive clientele. Quality is mediocre at best and prices are high.

Ilha da Culatra

Reviewed By Fiona D - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Went to Culatra by local ferry, which goes regularly throughout the day and is inexpensive.
We walked through the village of Culatra and across to the Atlantic side of the island, this walk is along a raised boardwalk and didn’t take very long.The beach is fantastic and deserted, but there are no facilities, even the toilet was boarded up in November! The beach was completely deserted in November.
We are not sunbathers so we walked along the beach and collected shells of which there are loads. Be aware if you have small children that there is a lot of swell and big waves, even on a calm day.
We walked to Farol along the beach, although it has a different name it is all part of the one island, the walk took about 45 minutes and you can get the return ferry from there or walk back to Culatra.
There were lots of restaurants and café’s open in Culatra but at this time of year Farol was a ghost town with everything shut.
This island is well worth a visit.
