Fuseta-Ria Beach

Fuseta, Olhão

The beach is part of a sand cove, stretching over the Fuseta village, directed to one of the Ria arms, and it’s very appreciated by children because of the warm and still waters. In the low-tide is possible to walk through the creeks and stilt banks around the area (with proper care, to avoid upsetting the bivalve nurseries) and observe the local fauna, especially crabs and bivalves but also some wader birds, looking for food in the mud with their long beaks. On the western edge of this white sand stretch, you can see a curious building over palisades; it’s about an old rescuing castaways station. Despite de village proximity, the water quality remained acceptable during the bathing season, given the fact that the Ria Formosa’s water renews automatically for each tidal cycle.

Pedestrian access and tarred road since the Fuseta village. Ample and ordained parking (except the fair days), near the Fuseta boarding deck. Support equipment (restaurant and wc) and surveillance during the bathing season. Accessible beach. Orientation: Southwest.
