Create an itinerary including Tavira Island
Vast stretches of white and golden sands, classical South Iberian and Moorish houses, and a wide range of traditional taverns make Tavira Island an idyllic way to experience the many colors of Portugal. Accessible by ferry or water taxi, the 11 km (6.8 mi) long island shelters exotic flora and curious birds, including the seasonal flamingo. You can walk for hours through its dunes and marshes. Stake out a place at one of the campsites, go swimming and soak in some sun, or have a stroll through the island's charming narrow streets. You can stop for a bite at a traditional restaurant. Make Tavira Island a centerpiece of your Tavira vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Tavira trip itinerary planning website.

  • What a wonderful beach, and challenging waves. The men who rent out the beds serve great coffee and tostas that comprise a meal for one. Toilets are remarkably clean (enough)

  • Enjoyed our time on Tavira island,Boat trip was only £2.20 return,with restaurants nearby, comfortable sunlounger ,They even had fish plastic bottle banks
  • This is the main beach with the biggest “structure” in Tavira region and islands. Several restaurants, camping and all beach facilities and services. You can take the ferry at “Cais das 4 águas” which is much closer than taking it in Tavira center. This is also the more crowded beach in the area,but once you arrive in Tavira island beach you can walk west to find less crowded spots.
