For just a few Euros return, you can get to Farol beach by ferry from Olhão. This
sequence of photos starts at the ticket office, found in the east corner of the waterfront
gardens in Olhão. The sailing to Farol takes either 30 or 45 minutes depending on
whether the ferry stops at Culatra first, which is the other beach on the island.
Whether you are on the shortest of longest route, you’ll have a great time... and
that’s before you’ve even got to the beach !
