Tavira Island, Faro Reviews

  • Tavira Island (Portuguese: Ilha de Tavira) lies south of the town of Tavira, Portugal, just a few hundred metres off the coast. It is 11 kilometres long and varies between 150 m to 1 km in width. The island has 11 km of the best beaches in the Algarve, including areas where naturism can be legally practised. It is part of the Natural reserve of Ria Formosa. It is also popular among tourists, people that like to swim and bird watchers. Access to the island is by ferry from Quatro Águas, southeast of the city of Tavira, and also by a small floating bridge in the Santa Luzia/Pedras d'El Rei area, followed by a small train trip (operating during the summer months) or by foot in a footpath parallel to the railway line (c. 2 km).

  • Great place to unwind in late September. Good choice of eateries. Easy ferry links from Tavira.

  • Super schöner Tag! Fähre schnell und günstig, der Strand wie in der Karibik, Gastronomie allerdings ziemlich eklig aber da gibt es auf dem Festland ja genug Gutes. Ein extrem schöner Ausflug

  • Eenvoudige salade met octopus gegeten. Glaasje huiswijn erbij. Goeie kop koffie na. Meer hoeft niet op Ilha da Tavira. Voorlaatste tentje aan de linkerkant als je van het pontje komt.

  • Com praias do lado do mar e da "Ria Formosa", é um óptimo lugar para ir em família tamto as praias, que são das melhores, como para fazer um picnique, uma vez que tem mesas abrigadas do sol pelos pinheiros. A ilha tem um parque de campismo, e muitos restaurantes. O acesso é feito de ferry, com un custo relativamente baixo, esse passeio tambem é agradável.
