Praia da Ilha da Culatra

Maritime beach

Part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, the Ilha da Culatra is one of the island-barriers separating the sea from the estuary. Accessible only by the ferry service departing from Olhão, the Beach is free of any motorised vehicles ensuring peace and tranquillity prevail to create the perfect ambience for those seeking to rest on open sands bathed by a calm sea. The transparency of the waters here ensures visibility of around 15 metres, ideal for divers.

In Culatra, a former fishing village, there are restaurants specialising in the famous razor clam rice or the caldeirada fish stews that so successfully combine the many types of fish that prosper in the waters here.
