What to do in Isla Canela – Family days out – See Vilamoura In A Whizz

segway-88961_128009/13/2016
As the weather starts to cool down I think this is a lovely autumn activity. We enjoy a day out and this would be ideal. Head over the boarder and follow the road towards Faro for around 65 minutes and you will arrive In Vilamoura.

Pick up your Segway, strap on your helmet and begin the tour with a comprehensive orientation session that will help you get comfortable with the electric, self-balancing vehicle.

Once you feel confident steering your Segway, set off behind your guide. Cruise along the coastline at a leisurely pace, soaking up the ocean breeze. Admire views of the Falésia and Quarteira beaches, idyllic and seemingly never-ending stretches of golden sand. During the tour, stop for several breaks, during which the guide will explain more about the local area.

Zip up toward the Vilamoura Marina, where hundreds of vessels, including opulent yachts, are berthed. Then, cruise by local markets and witness the flurry of activity as vendors hawk all sorts of freshly picked fruits and vegetables.

Toward the end of the tour, stop at a fish market, where you’ll have the chance to hop off your Segway and browse the stalls of freshly caught fish and perhaps even pick up some tasty local specialties to cook for dinner later that day.

After 1.5 hours, your tour finishes back and the departure point in Vilamoura.

“The tour was one of the highlights of our visit. Andrea was punctual and lovely. We covered much within 1.5hours and saw parts of Quarteira that we could have missed. Andrea was also very patient; allowing us to buy and try a roadside roasted snack and taking photos and videos along the way.”

How about heading to Seville for a tapas cookery course? Arrive around 10am, visit a local market with your guide and get cooking with a professional chef. All that’s then left to do is take the weight off your feet and enjoy a wonderful meal before heading home. Interested? Read more here atdspain.com/en/service/tapas-cooking-course

What to do in Isla Canela – Day trips – Cruise Up The Guardiana

transguadiana_home_109/13/2016
I haven’t been on this boat trip but as they depart I always wish I was going with them. I have promised my kids we will go next time we visit Isla Canela, so I will do a review soon.

Here is a very recent review I spotted on tripadvisor.

“Fantastic River Trip with excellent meal and entertainment”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days ago

Great river trip with breath-taking scenery along the Guadiana River, this being the border between the Algarve and Spain. Lunchtime led to a traditional Algarvian BBQ meal with traditional entertainment where all are encouraged to join in. There is also at the restaurant a rather nice swimming pool for patrons to use free of charge and then of course there was the return trip on the boat. An excellent trip which represented excellent value for money.

Watch this video. Stick with it. It does become better and explains the trip 😉

What to do in Isla Canela – Day trips – Moorish Jeap Safari

What to do in Isla Canela – Day trips – Moorish Jeap Safari

POP09/06/2016
How about a jeep safari to get you out and about? This company will even collect you from Isla Canela.

Here is a review from tripadvisor.

Great team work, very well organized, welcoming and proffessional staff”

4 of 5 starsReviewed 25 September 2015

“I booked the “Moorish Trail” for myself and some members of my family, with the idea to maybe be able to suggest this to our friends and family who come to spend their holidays with us.

Pick-up service and journey to Vila real Stº António is good and quick, in a comfortable coach.

We started off with the jeep safari which was very well organized (we were with 8 jeeps, each with around 8 pax!). The drivers speak a variety of languages so all nationalities can enjoy their explanations about all there is to tell of the countryside, flora, fauna and history, plus: they are very good drivers!!
Around lunchtime we arrived at the Quinta (farm/restaurant, owned by Riosul) where all guests (jeep and boat trip) could relax for a while, get a cool drink, take a jump into the pool. We then had a fantastic lunch, served by all the jeep drivers, who quickly put on their aprons 🙂 There was a fab guitar player and the staff were just amazing, especially when they started to sing!

After lunch we went on the boat, down the river, to Vila Real Stº António.
Thumbs up for a fantastic organization, great staff and what I liked a lot was the team work and good atmosphere they manage to create. It was a great day.
Certainly will recommend Riosul whenever I can!”
