Armona Island, just off the Algrave coast in the Ria Formosa Lagoon, is like a million miles from the busy town of Olhao, it's nearest mainland neighbour.  The island is a step back in time to how holidays used to be - there's no roads, it's completely flat (hope those sea level rises don't come), and it's small little village, the only habitation on the island is a ram shackle group of mainly single level holiday dwellings, all individually designed and looking like something from the Caribbean. The only way of getting to Armona is the regular ferry from Olhao, and the jetty at Armona, the main landing point, is always a hive of activity with ferries and small delivery boats coming and going.
