Amazing place to walk from Faro beach until Vilamoura. This path travels a major part of Ria Formosa. The views are incredible and you can also spot many kinds of birds and sea animals.

Experience the natural beauty of Ria Formosa on a walk of the salt pans, marshes, and pine woodlands of the protected habitat of many species of birds. Ria Formosa is one of Portugal’s Seven Natural Wonders, and you’ll soon discover why. You’ll enjoy a tour of this sacred land, and discover the natural beauty and wildlife that is protected here. On this tour you will explore the protected areas of Ludo and Quinta do Lago. These two areas are extraordinary places for birdwatching, in fact, some of the best birding spots in the Algarve. As you walk past the marshlands, you’ll enjoy stunning views of the lagoon. If the tide is out you’ll be able to see local people working on their clam farms, important economic activity. Enjoy incredible views over the saltpans and learn about the traditional salt extraction methods used in the Algarve. The region is famous for the quality of its salt which is known here as white gold. Keep your eyes peeled for amazing birdlife like the colorful Greater Flamingo and many other birds which are common species in these parts. You’ll be walking in one of the best bird watching spots in the Algarve. Ludo and Quinta do Lago are well worth discovering.

Great hiking trail in Ria Formosa, natural park, near Faro beach. You can go there just for a small walk, but the trail until Quinta do Lago, GiGi beach is around 3 km, you can go further along the coast or turn to Ludo, a amall pine wood forest. You can go by car or get bus 16 from Próximo bus station. The same to the airport and Faro beach.
