that visitors don't need to go far to enjoy a variety of sports on the lake.
The lake avoids any motorised sports such as speed-boating or jet-skiing and instead provides tuition, lessons and facilities for those activities which rely on either the water or the wind for power.
Windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving, canoeing, kayaking and dinghy sailing are all popular pursuits around the lake. All instructors are fully qualified and equipment for all ages and abilities is provided on-site. Children's lessons are available from the age of 6.
It is possible to enjoy these sports on the ocean as well. Those less experienced may prefer to take some lessons on the lake first before moving on to the less predictable open sea.
After you have enjoyed some time in the water you can relax with a meal and a sundowner while taking in the views of Ria Formosa Nature Reserve at the excellent eateries Casa do Lago and
