Where to eat in Fuseta

This local and authentic little gem is all about its fishing heritage. Along the streets you will find several excellent fish restaurants offering the best grilled fish and seafood for affordable prices.


We tried Casa Corvo and the food was so so good, Cafe Mestres and A Do Rui are two other popular spots.

Things to do in Fuseta

After lunch we walked down to the beach and looked at the colorful boats parked along the harbour. From the beach you can spot the beautiful sandbank island and also catch a boat if you would like to make a tour to one of the bigger islands.


We stopped for a coffee at the beach bar, and then continued on to the natural reserve on the other side of the harbour.


Charming paths will lead you through this green area where you can spot birds and other wetland wildlife. We got very happy when we saw a big flock of cute flamingos.
