For wildlife enthusiasts
The Algarve is a destination of great interest, with innumerable species of birds, animals and native plants that can be observed not only during migration season, but also all year round.
Birdwatching in Vale do Lobo can also be very rewarding due to the broad diversity of birds attracted to the neighbouring nature reserve.
Ria Formosa Nature Reserve
The breathtaking Ria Formosa nature reserve runs from Quinta do Lago/Faro to the borders with Spain and is an outstanding natural haven for hundreds of species of wildlife.
The Ria Formosa Natural Park is one of the most amazing places in the Algarve, not only for its variety of landscapes but also because of its unique location.
Recently elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal, this is one of three protected areas not to be missed during your holidays in the Algarve.
