Visit a 26-hectare beautiful and organic private property in the heart of Ria Formosa Natural Park and taste the best oysters in Algarve.

Moinho dos Ilhéus belongs to the same family since 1937. During this century became a home of one of the best oyster productions in Europe. Its privileged geography, human pressure free, exclusive natural tidal and light cycles, and the passion of mother and daughter make this property a best-kept secret.

This delightful experience starts with you being guided through the property full of history where there is still an old watermill. Then, we will learn the life cycle of the oysters, meet and watch the workers hand calibrating, selecting and cleaning daily the pearls of  Moinho. At the end, we will enjoy from sea-to-table the premium oysters paired with two carefully selected wines from the Algarve region.
