Praia dos Tesos (Fuseta Ria)


Praia dos Tesos (Fuseta Ria)


This beach is located in a sandy bay that stretches alongside the town of Fuseta, facing a section of the estuary. It is a favourite with children because of its warm, calm waters. At low tide, you can go through the reed plantation and banks of silt in the surrounding area (taking care not to disturb the shellfish nurseries) and observe the local wildlife, especially crabs and bivalves, but also wading birds searching for food in the mud with their long beaks.

At the far western end of this strip of sand, you will see a curious building with a palisade; it is a former lifeguard and rescue station. Despite its proximity to the built-up area, the quality of the water usually remains acceptable during the summer holiday season, since the water in the Ria Formosa is renewed with each tidal cycle.
