Tavira : Holiday Accommodation
Pretty Tavira is a captivating mix of whitewashed architecture and lovely, uncrowded beaches. Set amid flat plains, it's divided by the River Gilao and boasts elegant whitewashed houses along its banks, together with medieval churches, narrow lanes and a crumbled Moorish castle commanding stunning vistas. You'll find enticing fish restaurants and tapas bars around its squares, all ideal for spending quiet evenings in a typical, old Algarve atmosphere. When the beach calls, the Ilha de Tavira - a ten kilometre long sandbar - awaits nearby across a stunning lagoon. Boasting pristine, soft-sand beaches and sheltered waters, it's perfect for picnicking and relaxation and just a quick ferry ride away. Otherwise, take your pick from other exciting outings, perhaps to historic Seville or bird-watching or relaxing around the beautiful lagoons and islands of Ria Formosa Nature Reserve.
