Birds & Boats
The Algarve is one of the most important regions in Portugal concerning birdwatching. Over than 300 birds species can be seen all year around, among them there are countless numbers of raptors, seabirds, waders, duck and passerines.
Near 40% of the region is included in the Natura 2000 Network and the biggest part is considered Special Protection Area (SPA) and/or Important Bird Areas (IBA – Birdlife International).
Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António Marshes Natural Reserve and the Ria Formosa Natural Park can be highlighted as prime birdwatching areas due to its national and international importance as wetlands.
Here species like the Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus), Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia), Purple Gallinule (Porphyrio porphyrio) and the Audouin’s Gull (Larus audouinii), among others, are easily seen.
This excursion is composed of 2 parts:
- Birdwatching in the morning
- A typical lunch in the ‘Casa das Buganvilias’, accompanied by typical Algarve music and a dip in our pool.
- A relaxing trip aboard the Jasmim Flor, along the Guadiana River.
Enjoy one of the most outstanding of our treasures, the birds.
For your comfort we supply optical gear for individual use during the visit.
