Coast / Beaches


The Eastern Algarve coast is sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean in many places by sand bars or islands and is called the Ria Formosa which is a protected national park.

Barrill beach just outside Tavira is 20 minutes drive and accessed by a small railway, previously used to move fish from the coast. There are bars, shops and cafes housed in the old fish factory buildings. Other beaches are reached by water taxi or ferry. The nearest beach is at Fuzeta, a 15 minute drive away and the part of the coast that can be seen from the terrace.

Olhao is a working fishing port and has a large number of ferrys going to the offshore islands, several of which are inhabited.

Day trips can be arranged to include a lunch on one of the islands with sightseeing around the others by an experienced skipper with good knowledge of the local wildlife.
