The Algarve region
Tavira is often known as the prettiest town of the Algarve. The lovely Ria Formosa nature reserve is within only 8 kilometres. The beautiful island beach is a short boat ride away, with plenty of beach cafes and sunshades. Water sports available in the summer.
There are many places to visit in the surrounding area such as historic Castro Marim, charming fishing villages such as Fuzeta and Olhao. Loule market is always a favourite where you can hunt for that bargain. Family fun can be found at the Aqua Show water park near Quarteira or you can swim with the dolphins at Zoo Marine near Albufeira.
Algarvean and Roman history, architecture and culture are in Tavira in abundance. Visit the many churches and castle. Take a walk around the cobbled streets or along the river bank. Enjoy a meal or snack in one of the many riverside cafes and restaurants. Hop on a five minute boat ride to the beautiful beaches on the Isle of Tavira. It seems time has stood still in this charming old town with a long history.
Visit other local places such as Castro Marim, Cabanas and Santa Luzia. Santa Luzia has a summer festival with live music and street entertainment during August. Take in the evening outdoor (free) shows in the centre of Tavira during the summer months.
Enjoy a drink in the 'square' at Villa Real, surrounded by orange blossom. Wander round the many shops or stroll along the marina. This is the last town in Portugal before Spain. Visit the beautiful city of Seville in Spain (2 hours) or the nearest town in Spain just over the border, Ayamonte.
