We were very happy with the property and enjoyed the resort, thanks. Location also very good for what we wanted. Only small feedback would be which way to put front door key in lock (have never seen a key that shape before) and instructions for air conditioning (don't need it in England & wasn't sure it was suitable/safe to be left running overnight).
Found the folder with information about local towns & restaurants useful.
Known as the ‘capital of the octopus,’ Santa Luzia is an earthy working fishing village home to a number of very good seafood restaurants, charismatic cafés and a solid community of fishing families. A palm-fringed estuary with colourful fishing boats fronts a kernel of atmospheric cobbled back streets and tiled houses.
Santa Luzia is part of the six unique barrier islands of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, which is one of the most important wetlands in Iberia. These tidal wetlands and salt-marshes shelter various fish, reptiles and wading birds, including the rarest species Purple Galinule.
Spot Fiddler Crabs, Avocets, Spoonbills, Herons and the rare swivel eyed Mediterranean Chameleons on the path trails leading to Barril beach or Terra Estreita beach.
Walk across the causeway near Pedras D’el Rei to the nostalgic miniature train that drives to and fro over the salt-marshes to the beautiful white, dunes sand beach of Barril. This service functions all year from 8am to dusk and a path alongside takes 10 to 15 minutes to walk.
Once on Barril beach you can have refreshments in the cafés that once housed the fishing families who spent the summer working the tuna fleets. The anchors lay on the dunes as remnants of this abandoned livelihood.
Alternatively, from the village, you can catch a small ferry boat across the lagoon to the thinnest part of the island ‘Terra Estreita’ where there is a funky beach café and miles of deserted beach.
Santa Luzia is host to a traditional fishing festival in august, where locals compete in maritime games, stalls flank the river front and open air concerts fill the night…fun for all the family.
