We booked an afternoon trip around the Rio Formosa islands. It was great fun. The boat is super comfortable as well with leather sofas and armchairs. Our guide was excellent and told us lots about the islands and the wildlife. The deserted beach on Culatra is amazing. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
