The Ria Formosa Natural Park is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Portugal according to 656,000 people who voted.
You can be minutes away from this barrier island system if you win the week’s condo stay plus $2,000 toward airfare in Fuseta on the Algarve Coast of Portugal. It’s the prize in Second Helpings’ first travel raffle thanks to generous donors.
The Ria Formosa is an important wintering ground for birds and a nesting site for many endangered species. Add to that fishing and other water activities, relaxing on the beach, and visiting the culturally rich town of Faro, just 15 miles away.
It sounds like a great way to experience one of the top places to visit, Portugal. Just 300 tickets will be sold and the winning ticket will be drawn November 21.
