“The Fonts of Estombar. The SPRINGS”

Municipal Park of the Springs
Ranked #2 of 2 things to do in Estombar
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 February 2017

These are beautiful fresh springs that eventually run into the ocean.
A lovely trail for walkers winds along the river. Official picnicing spot with large area for children to run and play unsupervised.
The only day NOT to go is MAY 1st when hundreds of Portuguese flock here to picnic on May Day. An unspoilt quiet nature spot.

Beautiful historic canal systems that you can swim in on hot days. The water is so clear but it is extra cold, so perfect for a hot day in the algarve! Can get popular on the weekends/holidays with many locals coming with picnics, but there is plenty of room for everyone!
Lots of picnic tables, BBQs, children's playground, walking nature trails....
There is a cafe open until 3pm serving coffee, beer, icecream, etc.
Not sure of the opening times but closes around 8.30pm to avoid campers and vandals. FREE ENTRY!
Can bring dogs if they are easily sociable.
Currently a photography exhibit on display. Sometimes, they host local festivals as they have an amphitheater.
Sunset picnics are the best! :)

We were brought to the springs by our tour guide on Jipe safari. A lovely place for a picnic, stroll or just to relax.
Playground for small children and walks through the park land.
The spring pool was very busy with school children on a trip when we visited but it was lovely to see them enjoying themselves.
It Is worth a visit as it is an area of natural beauty even if you only stay for an hour.

Visited on a Sunday when the area was alive with family parties making use of the picnic area and BBQ. Children were enjoying the fresh water swimming pools and the fitness trail was obviously a pull for young and adults alike. We had a lovely walk along the banks of the river and will look forward to returning to see it again at sunset when the tide is in for a different perspective.

Visit outside the peak summer season. The place is very nice, a merger between the well-being and nature. Great space to hold a picnic with the kids. In the summer should be more confusion but in the summer is always in this area. Good also for a canoe ride too. A good choice for a different afternoon.
