If you live in Europe don't sit on a plane for 10+ hours to go to a desert island! Go to Olhao and get the ferry across to this fabulous traffic free island to reach an island which is just one enormous beach!

There are two ferry options to get there. ( you can take a boat trip or water taxi but would cost considerably more). 1. From Fuseta. This takes you to a deserted beach area. It's generally not crowded although I haven't been there in the...More
