It was here that, in the 15th century, the Portuguese set off on the epic journey that led them to discover other peoples and cultures. There is no shortage of high-quality beaches, with sandy stretches as far as the eye can see, framed by golden cliffs, virtually deserted islands marking the boundary between Ria Formosa and the sea, and small coves sheltered by the rocks. The ocean, in every shade of blue and mostly calm and warm, invites you for long swims and to indulge in water sports.
