These are beautiful fresh springs that eventually run into the ocean. A lovely trail for walkers winds along the river. Official picnicing spot with large area for children to run and play unsupervised. The only day NOT to go is MAY 1st when hundreds of Portuguese flock here to picnic on May Day. An unspoilt quiet nature spot.

Beautiful historic canal systems that you can swim in on hot days. The water is so clear but it is extra cold, so perfect for a hot day in the algarve! Can get popular on the weekends/holidays with many locals coming with picnics, but there is plenty of room for everyone! Lots of picnic tables, BBQs, children's playground, walking nature... More

Children were enjoying the fresh water swimming pools and the fitness trail was obviously a pull for young and adults alike.

Visit outside the peak summer season. The place is very nice, a merger between the well-being and nature. Great space to hold a picnic with the kids. In the summer should be more confusion but in the summer is always in this area. Good also for a canoe ride too. A good choice for a different afternoon.

This is just outside Estombar and is used in summer as an educational area for youths. Out of season, it is quiet and scenic. See all the different flora and fauna of the area including a small estuary. For the fitness buffs there are several stations around the pathways to exercise while jogging or riding a bike.
