The May 2017 issue of Enjoy the Algarve, Island style, is out now! Read it here and please feel free to share with all your friends.
In it: we talk to marine biologists Miguel Correia and Jorge Palma about seahorse breeding and survival in the Ria Formosa, find out what it’s really like to live on an island in the Algarve (the pros include loads of fresh seafood whereas the cons certainly involve recent demolition threats), and learn about Portuguese water dogs.
We also bring you nine things you shouldn’t miss on Ilha da Armona, five tips to do on Ilha Deserta, advice on how to get to the islands, and the report of a trip to Ilha da Culatra’s fishing community with sailor Ricardo Barradas. Our columnist Arthur van Amerongen explains why the people of Ilha da Armona think he’s the bicho papão, the bogeyman.
Plus: expat Rik Dejonghe about finding perfect waves, aerial photography tips by Hélio Ramos and everything you need to know about bacalhau.
