“Holidays in July”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Very clean beach, white sands and clear water, Lots of restaurants mostly seafood which is excellent, also meat dishes, Including other restaurants, which serve everything else including junk food. Bar service in the paid area which has fixed beach umbrellas, also massage tent and first aid center. You can either camp on the island in the camping area, or catch the ferry boat every hour which runs between 8:00 a.m. till I think 22:00hrs.

“The nicest beach in the Algarve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Tavira and its neighbour Barrill are a few klms apart and both are beautifull. To get to Tavira you travel over by boat and to Barril you can get a little train which is really great fun. The restaurants in Barrill are really good with a new fish restauant just open. the sardines are great and really inexpensive.A must.
If you like a beautifull beach with very people on it this is for you

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Long walk and 5 minute ferry in the off- season. Not many maps of the island, so just know that as you walk along the main pathway you'll pass several restaurants...then emerge at an amazing beach. Soft sand, stretches forever, fantastic seashells. If you go to Tavira, you really must go here. Wow.

“Tavira Islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We went to the islands of Tavira last year, we had a marvellous day.
The transfer by boat is cheap and the views are spectacular!
The beaches are wide and open, the water clear.
It's a paradise for sunlovers and naturism.

“Perfect time in beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

To be near the ocean, all day.
Sleep, eat, play in the beach..
Living in the house in this island was superb, in the morning eat in frontface ocean, in the evening dining outside.
When the see was not so good go to the port.
