No one believes us when we say there is no need to fly hours to the Caribbean or the Maldives - there are beautiful beaches just a short boat ride away from Olhao. And even at this time of year, this is how you can find them! All clear for you to enjoy... This beauty is on Ilha Deserta - a very special place; not least because of @estamine.ilha.deserta tucked at one end of the spit offering the most delicious fresh fish and seafood grilled over sizzling charcoal, accompanied by chilled Rose.... sorry-started to day-dream of our next visit.... .
