Tavira review

An illness resulted in a last minute booking holiday to Tavira. This was determined by a flight from Birmingham and a place that might be warmer than Birmingham. TA suggested that Tavira might fit the bill. It worked out perfectly. Tavira is a lovely place, a natural town which seems to support local people. We were delighted to see cockle fishers scooping cockles from the River Gilau and fishermen sorting their fish. A town that accommodates both tourists and locals.

We found a lovely apartment and spent a lot of time exploring the town and eating in local restaurants.

We did book a trip to Loule and the Gypsy Market. A great disappointment. Most goods on display were ones that could have been bought in any cheap market anywhere, no foods or crafts or local goods and no atmosphere. Go to the old town and market instead.

We can highly recommend Tavira, and especially in the low season, although the Camera Obscura was closed which was a disappointment.
