Set on either side of the meandering Rio Gilão and affectionately known as “The Venice of The Algarve”, Tavira is arguably the Algarve's most charming town. The old Roman bridge, the ruins of a hilltop castle and an astonishing 37 churches with the oldest dating back to the Middle Ages, are among many of Tavira´s historic attractions. An enticing collection of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops makes it the perfect sunny Portuguese destination or as an excellent base for exploring the Algarve’s eastern reaches. Tavira is ideal for wandering and exploring the ancient city with its many cobblestone streets, hidden green gardens and tree lined squares. There’s a small, active fishing port and a modern market with Tavira also being the launching point for the stunning, unspoilt beaches of Ilha de Tavira.


There are several great beaches near Tavira. The coast in this area is great for long seaside walks and for bathing, as its waters are warmer than anywhere else in the Algarve.

Ilha de Cabanas: This is an island in front of the town Cabanas de Tavira, with a spectacular long and narrow beach. The sand is white and the island feels like paradise. Great for long beach walks.

Ilha de Tavira (also known as Tavira Island): Is famous for being one of the best beaches near Tavira. The beach is quite sandy and the sand is almost white. Tavira Island stretches for approximately 11 kilometres and is just 3 kilometres south from the town of Tavira. There are restaurants and the beach also holds a Blue Flag, showing the quality of the beach. It is a great destination for a day trip.

Praia do Barril: Accessible on foot or by train, this beach is known for its bizarre anchor cemetery with over 100 anchors in front of the beach. The anchors were from the tuna fishing community, which disappeared when the bluefin tuna moved to other waters. The beach itself is also very big and also incredibly beautiful.


There are many top rated restaurants in Tavira. If you like food, you won’t be disappointed here. From local cuisine to fine dining, you can find it all in the area.
