Cacela Velha, perched over the lagoon

From the promontory of Cacela Velha, a white village with an 18th century fortress and church, enjoy the stunning views out over Ria Formosa, with its meandering currents and sandbanks.

In order to better appreciate the route, the estates and the orange groves, take an electric Tuk Tuk as far as Cacela Velha and Fábrica beach. Spend some time spotting the Moorish influences along the streets of Cacela Velha, before wandering the banks of Ria Formosa while taking in the landscape and observing the birds.
