Fuseta Ria Beach

A small sandy cove located at the foot of the Fuseta village, facing a river arm extention. Much appreciated by children because of the calm warm waters, The narrow beach easily becomes crowded during the summer.

At low tide you can walk around the many creeks and bank leaks of the surrounding area (taking care not to disturb the shellfish nurseries) and observe the local wildlife, especially crabs and bivalves but also some waders, looking for food in mud with their long beaks.

Despite the proximity to the village, the water quality remains generally acceptable during the summer season, as the Ria Formosa water is completely renewed every tidal cycle.
