Take a 15 minute ferry boat ride to the little island of Armona where you can relax, have fun with your family, and explore through what seems like a different town.

Island
“Ilha da Culatra is a large sand bar island in the natural park of Ria Formosa, near the town of Olhão. The main attraction of Culatra Island is its beautiful beach, which can be considered as one of the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve. It is the perfect destination for a day trip. The island is part of the Ria Formosa National Park, so it has had very limited development. There are no paved roads on Culatra and the only method to reach the island is by ferry. Along the southern side of the island there are golden beaches, with calm crystal-clear waters and on the northern side are lagoons. The Ilha da Culatra is the perfect location to escape the crowds even in the summer where most of the Algarve is bustling with tourists. Ilha da Culatra is a great place for hiking. You can walk from the village of Culatra all the way to the village of Farol. There are two ways to do this: along the beach, or on a wooden path in the dunes. The walk is about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles). You will see a variety of vegetation and wildlife and will truly appreciate the beauty of this island. You can arrive on Culatra, walk to the beach, and then walk along the sea to the west, all the way to Farol. There you can enjoy a delicious seafood lunch and take the return ferry to Olhão. The island is permanently inhabited by around 1000 people, who mainly live on fishing and tourism. Ilha da Culatra consists of three parts:  Culatra (on the northern banks). Culatra is a small fishing village that is mainly inhabited by fishermen.  Farol (in the west). Farol is a small village with a lighthouse (Farol means lighthouse in Portuguese). This part of the island is sometimes called Ilha do Farol (Farol Island). This name suggests it is another island than Ilha da Culatra, but actually it is a different part of the same island. Culatra and Farol are the only villages on the island.  Hângares. This is named after an old hangar for marine seaplanes. Hângares is a quieter area, with very little infrastructure and few tourists. Ilha da Culatra is connected to the mainland by a small passenger ferries which depart from Olhão or Faro. For both routes there are in excess of 10 departures per day in the high season but drop to only a handful in the winter. Departure times change seasonally (and even weekly) so check locally at ticket office especially for the last return ferry. There are also ferry taxis in the event you miss the final departure, but they are considerably more expensive. From Olhão, the ferries depart from the main jetty and make two stops at Farol (€7.00 return, 45 minutes) and Culatra (€6.00 return, 30 minutes). The distance is short but the journey takes a surprisingly long time due to the shallow waters of the Ria Formosa. The ferry service from Faro departs from the Porta Nova Pier and connects to Farol (€5.00 return, 30 minutes) and Culatra (€6.00 return, 40 minutes). ”
