  • Vast area of the Natural Park to discover which covers the mainland and the outlying islands, landscape is so different in all areas with so much to see and enjoy.

  • We spent a couple of hours here and saw wonderful flowers, Flamingos and many other birds. It’s well worth a visit if in the area.

  • Loved this place
  • It is beautiful (the wildlife such as flamingos and other birds especially), however be aware of a few things when walking as the majority of signs are portuguese only and many of the online guides seemed to omit some useful things: It is a fairly long hike which Ive done loads but it can become incredibly hot and a heat trap real quick. We went at 4.30 and kinda was too hot for one of our group, and there is very little shade a no amenities. Recent wildfires have hit some parts of it too due to heat. Do bring water, head coveringsWear hiking or appropriate shoes for this.be careful as one section which looks walkable is actually a narrow road which leads to private property (Ludo I beleive). Id recommend this for experienced runners, hikers or cyclists. Do go at a smart time aka not the hottest point. The part that leads to Faro actually leads to a small collection of houses so walk towards the petrol station and youll get to the Aeroport.
