From Casa Josephina, you have it all at your fingertips!!
On the coast of the Algarve, Portugal, there are beaches with huge cliffs in the West, and to the East an extensive lagoon system that runs from Faro to Manta Rota with beautiful wide, long, soft sandy beaches. This sheltered lagoon area is protected from the Atlantic Ocean by islands and sandbanks off the coast where there are even more paradisiacal beaches! These beaches are amongst the finest in Europe.
From several places (Olhao, Fuzeta...) it is possible to walk, take a boat or even a small train (Pedras d'el Rei) to visit these islands and sandbars. This whole area is approximately 1800 hectares and has been declared a national park: the Ria Formosa. Of interet too is the Visitor Centre, Quinta de Marim.
The nearest beaches are just minutes away from your house: in Olhao and in the village of Fuzeta. Fuzeta is still an original fishing village with a beautiful beach and a nice lagoon! A ferry takes you five minutes to a fantastic, miles-long beach on the other side of the lagoon. A little further towards the Spanish border lie the world-famous and idyllic beaches of the Ilha de Tavira.
Along the Algarve coast of Portugal there are countless beautiful beaches! Everything is easily accessible from Casa Josephina from the IP1-A22 motorway, from the Spanish border to the west. You can find all the beaches on this link: http://www.algarve-portal.com/en/sport_leisure/beaches/
Many of these beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status by the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education). The coveted Blue Flag is awarded for water quality, sanitation, parking facilities, security and the availability of other service such as restaurants etc.
