However, just a short ferry ride across the lagoon will see you enjoying the luxurious golden sands of Ilha da Culatra.

On those days where you require a little extra TLC and sunshine, you can be at the beach within thirty minutes where many enjoy lazing by the sea, or even taking part in popular water sports.
