Discover the diverse species of birds that inhabit the Ria Formosa

The Ria Formosa, one of the most important Portuguese wetlands, consists in a diversity of habitats lining almost 60 kilometres of the Algarvian coast. Barrier islands, coastal lagoons, marshes, dunes and wooded areas are some of the habitats that compose it, which explains the presence of a vast bird community. During the cold season and the migrations, more than 30,000 birds visit this part of the Algarve. From colonies of Flamingos to diverse species of Waders and also Birds of Prey, Swamphens, Red Crested Pochards and Slender-Billed-Gulls are part of the vast range of species observed in this beautiful part of the Algarve.

In this natural reserve, we intend to practice the observation, according to the highest standards of respect for nature, of resident and migrating birds in groups of 4 to 8 persons accompanied by a guide. In this area, the experience will last 4 to 8 hours (including transport and meal breaks).

The Algarve, internationally known as a touristic beach and golf destination, also benefits from an exceptional natural heritage as well as a great diversity of habitats, which shows that there is much more to discover in this little corner by the sea. From the mountains to the Ria Formosa by way of the Barrocal, it reckons with a privileged geographical location for the observation of migratory birds as well as of the thousands who winter over thanks to the mild climate.

Seacret Tours, located in the Albufeira Marina, right in the centre of the Algarve, is only 15 minutes from the Salgados Lagoon and close to the main access roads to Barlavento (west) and Sotavento (east) of the Algarve as well as to the Alentejo plains.

Each activity is adapted to the interest and experience of the participants, whether the observers are little or very experienced.
