Although technically a river town situated on both sides of the Rio Gilao, Tavira is a ten-minute ferry ride away from the Ilha de Tavira—an island with a 14km stretch of dune-backed beaches without a hotel in sight. The town itself is very attractive with a few sites of its own, and plenty of accommodation and restaurants, bars, and cafes. Located about 20km from the Spanish border, it’s a fine spot to use as a base while exploring the coast of the eastern Algarve: places such as Cacela Velha, Manta Rota, Altura, and Praia Verde.

Tavira has it all for me in terms of a great Portuguese city. Cobblestone winding streets, beautiful tiled home fronts , whitewashed buildings, tranquil riverfront, street musicians, delicious seafood and a lovely mix of old and new. This church and clock tower dates back to 1809!

Without doubt one of the prettiest towns on the coast of Portugal and just across the border from Spain. The beach is a short ferry ride out but is it ever nice. LONG, WIDE and Clean. This is an ancient Roman town with a Roman bridge still in use. Lately it has become more touristy, but still worth a stay.
