Ria Formosa, on the coast of the Algarve close to Faro, is one of the area's most popular destinations for bird lovers and a wonderful place to spend the day. A protected nature reserve, the park covers over 50km of coastline from Tavira in the east to Ancao, encompassing almost the entire Formosa Estuary.
The park is made-up of a narrow strip of land separated from the sea by vast sand dunes behind which lies a labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands, mud flats, marshes and canals. The park holds special appeal for bird watchers, who flock to see a wide range of breeds such as the little bittern and purple heron, as well as egrets, white stork and the stone-curlew.
