“There is virtually nothing to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

After finding a parking space (not easy) we walked quite a way to see a very small waterfall (just a few feet high) and several people bathing in a smal pool.

There are a lot of great things to see in the Algarve .. but this isn't one of them in my view.

“different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Lovely walk and picturesque waterfall area in which people can bathe. It is a little out in the country from Tavira but is interesting

“River is dried up at present, and bridge burned down over the summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Well worth a visit, but as the bridge to get to it was burned down a few months ago, you get there by walking down the dried up river bed. Once the river starts to flow, not sure how accessible this vry beautiful beauty spot will be! Once the bridge is back, this will be a five star attraction; just now, it would be fairer to give it three stars!

“Watching divers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Quite a walk to get to it but a lovely cool place to be on a hot day. Interesting watching the young boys diving in from the rocks into the pool below.

“CLOSED - Do not bother visiting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I am sure this is a lovely spot, or was, when there is water running. I wish I had seen the previous review by alexken before we set off, because it is very hard to find and when you get there it is exactly as described by alexken. There is no water, only a stagnant green pool in a hot, smelly environment. You have to jump the barriers to visit, and walk down a lot of very rickety stairs that are moments from collapse (which is probably why it is closed). The whole thing is run down and has obviously not been maintained for years, the fencing is broken, the signs are all covered in grafitti, and the rope barriers have all broken and fallen over. The only reason we went was due to the review that said it was open, but whoever wrote it was either somewhere else, or was having a laugh because this has not been open for a very long time and by the look of it, will not be in the future. Even the local we asked for directions asked us, and I quote, "Why you visit, no good".

Do yourself a favour, and skip this cesspit, and continue on to Tavira which is a lovely port town, with lots of castles and churches to see, and a wonderful beach accessed by ferry. The food there is very cheap (as it is a long way from tourist areas like Albufeira), and the restaurants all have nice views overlooking the river or sea.
