Geocache Description:

O Farol da antiga barra


(O Farol)

A cache encontra-se junto ao Farol que se encontrava junto à barra. O programa Polis do Algarve, desde o ano passado que tem feito varias   alterações à ria, sendo uma delas a deslocação da barra para mais perto da Fuzeta, fechando como é óbvio a antiga barra. Apesar da barra ter sido fechada o Farol lá continua, abandonado, no meio das dunas.  

The cache is next to the lighthouse which was near the bar. The program Polis in the Algarve, since last year which has made several changes to the estuary, one of them was the movement of the bar closer to Fuzeta, of course closing the old bar. Although the bar was closed the lighthouse is still there, abandoned in the middle of the dunes.


(A barra antiga, que já não existe e a nova)

Para fazer estas cache tem as seguintes opções de escolha:


1ª. Se têm barco, ou outro tipo de embarcação tipo Kayak, é só saírem na doca da Fuseta e seguiram em direcção à ilha onde a cache está.

2ª. Podem apanhar o barco Táxi na Fuseta até à ilha. Não aconselho isto, pois os preços são um bocadinho caros.

3ª. Podem ir até à praia do Barril, que fica na ilha de Tavira e dai até à cache são cerca de 19 quilómetros a pé (ida e volta).

Aproveitem para dar um mergulho e desfrutar de um belo dia de praia caso o tempo esteja favorável.

Não se fiem nas imagens de satélite, pois a barra já não é ali.


To do this cache you have the following choices:

1st. If you have a boat or other vessel type Kayak, just leave the dock Fuseta and went towards the island where the cache is.

2nd. You can take a boat taxi to the island in Fuseta. I do not advise this, because prices are a bit expensive.

3rd. You can go to the beach of Barril, which is on the island of Tavira and walk to the cache for about 19 Kilometers on foot (total).

Enjoy the walk and a beautiful day at the beach if the weather is favorable.

Do not trust in the satellite images, because the bar is no longer there.
