You can visit the island of Farol, Culatra, Deserta and Faro with the public Ferry Boat from Faro. It’s the cheaper way to get to know the Ria Formosa and have quite frequent round trips to Farol, Culatra and Deserta. The schedules vary from season to season. If you want to find out more about Ria Formosa check our blog post.
You can buy ferry tickets only in the ticket stands near the Ferry in Faro (location here) or on the islands.
