Visited today from Tavira Stunning beach , much busier than Tavira island but equally amazing. 5min little train ride from main land . Selection of cafes, restaurants in the much needed shade . Crystal clear waters. Monument to Tuna fisheries depicted with 100's of huge anchors , very striking and picturesque. A lovely place to visit .

We use a lot of beaches on our trips, sadly this year our visit here will be the last for a number of reasons. Firstly parking where free is risky, in a hire car once damage when on road parked took place, common we were informed and local hawkers who find you one aggressively seek five euros for the privilege. The pay for car park is better but only one pay machine working on return meant a delay to get away. The train is fun for kids but overcrowded and covid measures weak and ignored. Trains are showing age now, the walk saves you money but not time. Then the loungers are lower quality than other beaches and we had to move as ours had faulty kit. We never eat or drink there as the bars are crowded, pricey and not quick. We walked out before orders came for years and now always picnic. Small play area attracted unsupervised children who did so with little regard for others. Easy to get to if you have a car, we always drive to Portugal, but many more beaches better than this.

It is located in the buildings where they processed the tuna fished in the sea opposite the beach. Today they don't fish any longer, and changed the use of the buildings. There are two bars, one fast food, one restaurant. Food quality is good, the service is fine, spotless clean, prices a little expensive but of course you pay for the location, with the beautiful beach and ocean in front of you. No service after 19:30, when everything is closed and nobody stays there.

Great beach to visit. The only beach in Tavira region where you don't need to go by boat. There's a small pedestrian bridge following by a small touristic train that takes you to the beach. You can also decide to walk along the track if you prefer, anyway it's a very nice ride. The train goes every 10 minutes but it can be crowded in late afternoon when veryone is getting back from the beach. Just before the beach there's an area with several restaurants all services and a museum.

You park your car in the neighborhood of Santa Luzia. There is a little bridge that you can take and then you can walk further to the beach. If you don't like to walk you can also take a train, but the train was very busy, not ideal to take in Covid times. The beach is big, so it's possible to find a place far from the crowds.
