Ria Formosa, long time no see

This area of the Ria Formosa is one of the most amazing places of the Algarve,not only for its variety of landscapes but also because of its unique location. Classified as a Natural Park in 1987, the Ria Formosa encompasses an area of about 18 000 hectares, and is protected from the sea by 5 barrier-islands and 2 peninsulas. We hadn't been here in 2 years and now we have a whole week to enjoy this paradise!
