Peninsula de Cacela
Eastern peninsula of the Ria Formosa opposite Cacela Velha
Peninsula de Cacela is the most eastern link in the chain of islands and peninsulas of the Ria Formosa that extends from Quinta do Lago west of Faro to Cacela Velha east of Tavira, protecting this unique lagoon system against the rough Atlantic Ocean
The peninsula stretches from the golf course Quinta da Ria to the popular holiday destination Manta Rota. The beach Praia de Cacela Velha is accessible on foot from Manta Rota, but it is more common to take the boat trip from Sitio da Fábrica in Cacela Velha. There is no docking area or any other facilities on the peninsula, so that you can enjoy nature undisturbed.
