This traditional fishing village dates back to Roman times and evidence of its rich past is displayed throughout. 18th Century monuments sit alongside mediaeval ruins, while holidaymakers can still enjoy contemporary accommodation and facilities.
The River Gilao divides the charming town into two and leads the way to Tavira’s ten kilometre long beach. Set in a spectacular lagoon, the beach is made up of velvety sands and sheltered waters, providing ideal conditions for families and sun-worshipping couples.
Nightlife on a Tavira holiday is relaxed and sophisticated. Evenings are mostly spent ambling around its winding streets or harbour side, followed by some fine dining and a few drinks.
The town’s cultural attractions and captivating atmosphere keep visitors returning year after year.
