  • Wonderful trip around the barrier islands. Our guide, Phillip, was excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable. Three hours very well spent.
  • Fantastic. Francisco the guide /boat captain /biologist was the best and was very very funny. Had a natural sense of humour. Made silly jokes but also very informative. Took us around Rio Formosa and the deserted Islands. Also allowed us to drive the boat
  • The guided tour around the wetlands of the Nature Reserve is well worth it for active types. Just be aware that as it is hot to take water! Bird life, plants and the ecology is explained by knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended! (Expect to ache a little afterwards.)
  • Francesco is a legend, the trip was amazing. A must try.
  • Thank you Francesco for a fantastic tour! We had a wonderful time learning a lot about the life and environment in Rio Formosa./Carina & Börje from Sweden

Where to stay in Tavira

Tavira boasts a selection of affordable accommodations. Check yourself into a family-run bed and breakfast or small-time hotel as an affordable option with a quiet atmosphere among the city's array of whitewashed homes. Stay in a guesthouse or private apartment tucked into the residential neighborhoods along the banks of the Gilao River for a great view over the waterway and across to the other side's historical waterfront buildings. Alternatively, you can opt to pay a little more to stay in one of the more upscale hotels located in the residential neighborhoods north of the freeway; these require transportation into town but feature pools, restaurants, and plenty of amenities.
