Fuzeta has two beaches for you to choose from. The first is a small beach on the lagoon in the town itself. This Fuzeta beach is very busy in the morning and late afternoon in August, but calm outside of this. When the tide is up it is great to swim. When the tide is down, you are reduced to paddling and exploring the shore. Families with toddlers will like it as being in the lagoon it is wave free and very safe.

Fuzeta's other beach is just across the lagoon on Ilha de Armona. At high tide, you can also swim here on the lagoon side without waves. However, the 'real' Fuzeta beach is the ocean side. Close to the landing pier, Fuzeta beach is packed in highseason. However, the beach extends left and right for miles, so those seeking some more peace and privacy can walk for five, ten, twenty minutes or more and find as much beach to themselves as they like. Walking left, it is about a twenty minute to half an hour walk (depending on how many shells you pick on the way) to the tip of the island, the 'barra de Fuzeta'. This is a dream beach landscape and well worth while for beach connessieurs. To watch a short Fuzeta beach video, showing this part of the beach, click the picture below.

Walking right, it will take you more than an hour to reach the other tip of the island, the beach at Armona. In between is miles of empty beach backed by dunes.

Access to Fuzeta beach

Access to the town - lagoon - beach is on foot from anywhere in the town. Parking is difficult in August, but once parked you are foot loose.

Access to the ocean beach is via the little ferries which run from the quay. In season, you buy your tickets first from the wooden hut on the other side of the quay road. Ferries run constantly in season. Out of season they have a time-table and they stop for for lunch - ferries have to eat as well !
