A visit to Tavira and Tavira Island

In Algarve on July 8, 2015 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

I needed a day out yesterday and on the spur of the moment decided to visit Tavira Island, a place I have never been to before.

It was a hot day, 32C, but quite windy once I was there. The sand is very soft and hard going when walking.

The island is a very popular venue for local people as well as tourists. There are no roads and therefore no cars etc on the island. The only access is by boat. You step straight onto sand except for one narrow concrete path which runs across the island, past several restaurants and bars, to the ocean side and the beach.

There is a campsite on the island and I also saw a some bungalows etc for holiday rent. I should imagine it would cost the ransoms of several kings for two weeks in summer.

Dogs and bicycles are also prohibited on the island.
