    Ria Formosa Natural Park
    Stop: 4 hours
    Enjoy the pleasure of sailing in a magnificent place. Visit the Ria Formosa salt marsh in the Algarve in Portugal, covering an area of about 18,400 hectares along 60 kilometers from the river Ancão to the beach of Manta Rota. In 1978, it was established as a nature reserve and at the end of 1987, it became a natural park. Most of its area corresponds to the lagoon system of the Ria Formosa, composed of islands and sandy peninsulas arranged parallel to the coast, protecting a lagoon.  At the park, discover the natural habitat of several rare species such as the common cayman, the flamingo and the round-winged eagle. Another inhabitant of the park, almost extinct in Europe, is the chameleon. Go deep inside this ecosystem, while enjoying the pleasure of sailing. If you like, the skipper will teach and mentor you on how to perform some of the sailing tasks, so you can feel like part of the crew. Choose your itinerary, and if you would like to, stop at some of the barrier islands.

Private first sailing ⛵️ lessons
Was a great experience with Paulo. We got our first sailing lessons 👌🏻 we were only 2 persons - so it was very individual and personal experience. Nice boat and Paulo was very friendly.

Calm, Immersive Sailling Experience
Feb 2020
Paulo hosted our party of 4 aboard his sailboat. He met us on shore after giving very precise directions on parking and the meeting area on the marina. From start to finish, Paulo was friendly, helpful, and interesting to chat to. We had a blast sailing at a leisurely pace. He didn't shy away from any questions and gave us a wonderful experience sailing in the Ria Formosa.

Thank you very much for pleasing me with your kind words. As I've been telling, sailing in family is surely one of the best things you can do. The cumplicity and teamwork needed to keep the boat going to our destination bring the crew together, what a better way to increase the love and unity inside the family. A special time that I always remember is the sparkle in the eyes of the parents when they see their children in control of the boat for the first time. It's priceless. Hope to sail with you again soon.
