Ria Formosa Nature Reserve is home to the picturesque Quinta da Ria Golf Course. The flat spacious landscape which borders the ocean is perhaps the most tranquil setting for a golf course. Wide fairways are flanked by small clusters of palms and large shallow bunkers making it a comfortable driving course, if there is such a thing. Approach shots to the generously proportioned greens are difficult to gauge due to the vast sand traps and subtly contoured surroundings which constantly hamper golfer’s depth perception. Quinta da Ria is a beautifully rounded golf course ideal for mid to high handicap golfer and this course is filled with birdie opportunities for the more skilled player.
