The sunset in Ria Formosa paints rich hues of red blended with oranges, purples, and it's our favorite part of the time. The journey starts in Faro at 16h45 on the ferry to Ilha Deserta crossing the main channel of Ria Formosa Natural Park with a landscape of the birds feeding over the saltmarshes. Once arrival on Ilha Deserta, you'll have 30 minutes of free time in Ilha Deserta, so you can walk on beach, relax, enjoy a drink in Restaurant Estaminé and/or go for a swim. Afterwards the journey back will be at sunset, either with the ferry or the speedboat, depending on time of the year and time the sun sets. After picture taken, we had back to Faro.
