This is a wonderful day out. Park along the front by the market that is also worth visiting. Buy a return ticket to Farol on the island for just over 4 Euros. Get off at Culatra stop after a 30 minute attractive trip across the lagoon then walk through the village across the boardwalk to the beach. You can then walk through the surf for an hour on the beautiful beach towards the lighthouse where there is a chilled out beach bar called Maramais with great views over the beach. Here there are great drinks and snacks - the sandwiches are huge. You can hire sun beds if you wish. Then a ten minute walk down to the jetty and a lovely boat trip back. The 11am out to Culatra and the 4pm back from Farol runs all year. See timetable in photos.

I visited both Armona and Culatra during my trip to Olhão and Culatra was my favourite. It was a 30 minute ferry journey and once on the island, it was 20-minutes walk to the beach (Praia) and this walk went through some wonderful views. Once arriving on the beach it was so nice, and practically empty. There is a small bar type place on the actual beach. I bought myself a peach ice tea and sat and enjoyed the view. I would recommend this trip. The ferry return ticket is only €3,70 as well

This beach is stunning and you really feel like your on a desert island. Miles of golden sands and clear blue sea awaits you here. A short ferry ride for approx €3.70 takes you to tranquility ⛴️⛴️ There is a short walk for approx 20mins along a flat surface. Worth the effort 🌞🌞💯

We took the ferry to Culatra then walked right through town to the beach. Walked along the beach to Farol the explored it for a while and caught the ferry back to Olhão. It was January so very few other people around. We did find a restaurant in Farol that was open for a drink before heading back.
