Tips from locals
A beautiful white sand beach with a lot of space, restaurants, bars and snack huts. Shade rental available in peak season.
A hope, skip and a jump from Tavira town, this is the closest and easiest of the islands to visit. Enjoy a snack at the Sunshine Bar whilst you’re there...say hi from us!!
The closest beach by distance can only be accessed by river boat between Tavira old town and Ilha de Tavira for 2 euros a head which runs half hourly from March to October morning to night (although check times as if you get stranded you will have to way for a 15 euro water taxi home). Once there…
Eastern coast of the Algarve has warmer waters and it is characterized by the estuaries and sand islands making up Parque Natural da Ria Formosa.
