Discover the diverse species of birds that inhabit the Ria Formosa

Ria Formosa is one of the most important and well-known Portuguese wetlands and is home to a diversity of habitats spanning almost 60 kilometres of the Algarvian coast. Barrier islands, coastal lagoons, marshes, dunes and wooded areas are some of the habitats that make up this beautiful natural haven that is the chosen dwelling for a vast community of birds. 

During the cold season and migrations, more than 30,000 birds adorn this region adding a flourish and combination of colour and uniqueness otherwise unseen elsewhere. 

From colonies of bright pink Flamingos to majestic birds of prey, a diverse species of Waders to Swamphens, stunning Red Crested Pochards to Slender-Billed-Gulls, we are truly spoilt by the array of different species that grace this beautiful part of the Algarve.

In this natural reserve, our aim is to practice observation whilst maintaining the highest standards of respect for the environment as well as the resident and migrating birds.

Birdwatching tours in the Ria Formosa are organised in groups of 1 to 8 people who are accompanied by one of our experienced guides therefore ensuring these aims and standards are met. This wonderfully unique experience has a duration of 4 to 8 hours (including transport and meal breaks).

Seacret Tours is conveniently located in the Albufeira Marina, right in the centre of the Algarve, only 15 minutes from the Salgados Lagoon. From here, we have easy access to the main roads of the Algarve as well as the calm and serene Alentejo plains.

Each activity is adapted to the interest and experience of the participant. So, whether you have a wealth of birdwatching experience or are an emerging enthusiast, we will have a tour that is just right for you.
