Fishing- Big game trips leave from Tavira and you can fish the lagoons free of charge, main species being Dorada, sole, scabbard fish, bass, ling etc. Boat fishing trips are readily available from many ports.
Driving into the countryside for a leisurely trip around the many towns and villages inland is also a popular pastime, a good suggestion is to follow the Guadiana river which forms the border with Spain, run right alongside the river on the tiny road up to Alcoutim, a lovely place to have lunch overlooking the river and, the Spanish village on the other side, a small ferry will take you across the river to visit!
