The Formosa lagoon, over towards the western Algarve, is the region’s crowning glory, its calm waters forming a unique ecosystem home to countless species of birds and aquatic wildlife. Boat trips through the lagoon – and across to the barrier islands – are a great day out and truly relaxing adventure.
The Algarve’s also known for its walking trails, with some of the most beautiful located along the Carvoeiro coastline. The seven hanging valleys trail is the most famous, but if you stay at the Rocha Brava Village Resort, you’ll be perfectly positioned to explore this and many others.
