Beaches and kitesurfing in Fuseta

Fuseta is situated east of Olhão at an especially nice part of the lagoon landscape of the Ria Formosa, with a long, flat sandy beach Praia da Fuseta-Ria. Due to low water depth and warm temperature of the lagoon this beach is ideal for families with little kids.It is also the perfect environment to learn and enjoy kitesurfing.

The quay for the ferry boat to the island Ilha da Armona in front of Fuseta is located at a branch of the lagoon near the camping ground. The seaside beach Praia da Fuseta-Mar can be reached within a 10 minutes’ walk across the island.
