The town of Fuzeta is a thriving fishing town and due to the warmer waters still has large catches of tuna. This forms part of the canning industry that the Algarve is known for. Fuzeta is also a large producer of natural sea salt from the salt beds that lay to the eastern side of the town. Campers and motorhomes are in for a treat as Fuzeta campsite is situated by the quayside. With views across the small Islands that give Fuzeta it’s beach. Accessible by taking the ferry to Armona-Fuseta.
If visiting the island you have a choice of the water taxi which can be more expensive than the ferry. The difference is ones a taxi which leaves when you want, rather than the ferry that leaves at certain intervals.
Fuseta is laid out like a grid, the many small streets as well as the main one which Chris-cross each other. It has much to offer, with a main pedestrian decorated cobble street with shops bars and art gallery that leads to a small square. With its trees that offer shade and public benches. The square is flanked on each side with many bars and restaurant for those who want to soak up the atmosphere the town offers. Many roads are either no entry, or one way.
To be honest there’s no real reason to want to drive around the narrow streets, as you would miss the real Fuseta. There are many buildings that will have you reaching for the camera. From traditional tiled to those with glazed balustrade decorating parapet walls. Some even have heart shaped panels in the windows. Enjoy the walk around the town, then head for a relaxing coffee.
