Walking & Hiking in the Algarve

With Formosa Park Apartment Hotel

One of the best spots for hiking and walking in the Algarve can be found in the protected Ria Formosa Nature Reserve which borders the grounds of our luxury hotel. This outstanding area of natural beauty spans 170km² of diverse eco-systems, and boasts an abundance of rich woodland, freshwater lakes and lagoons… and long costal paths. It is also home to over 200 species of bird, and is a resting point and feeding station for thousands of birds as they migrate between Europe and Africa.

Here you can revel in the lush pines, evergreens and extensive flora, as you hike picturesque coastlines, white stands, dense woodland and stunning tidal flats. And, with the park bordering a range of postcard perfect mountains, there is the opportunity to take your hiking to the extreme.

Urban Walks Through Historic Towns & Cities

Formosa Park is close to a number of historic cities, all offering a bountiful collection of monuments, astounding architecture and places of interest, including:

Tavira, a port town boasts a selection of Roman relics and Moorish architecture. From the stunning whitewashed buildings, to the two ancient Mosques and 12th century bridge… there is plenty to see and discover during a sightseeing walking tour of this important district.

Faro, a bustling city of 50,000 offers a range of striking medieval buildings, historic coastal walls and defences, along with a series of narrow cobbled streets which dominate the old quarter. With some of the most important architecture in Portugal, the city offer urban walkers and explorers the chance to marvel at thousands of years of history in a comparatively small area. Perfect for doing in a single day.
