“A beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The golden sand and the availability of restaurants and bars in close proximity combine to create one of the best beaches I've ever been to. Not too packed with people either - there's always a good place to find to sit down.

“A beautiful town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I fell in love with Tavira. Wonderful friendly people, beautiful beach and lots of resturants to choose from. We met Sergio at the municipal library. He tried so hard to help me post some pictures on Facebook and even if it didn't work in the end, it was greatly appreciated.What a great person! Tavira is my favorite in Portugal. I would go back anytime.

We went to the Island with the little boat last oktober, the tourist season is over so lots of reataurant are closed.
But still this is a lovely beach to visit,the water is claer the sand is lovely and white and you can find the most lovely ans beautiful shells.
