  • A great place where you can spend the whole day. A huge sandy beach, several restaurants and cafés, where you can not just eat, but eat properly, for every taste and appetite: meat, fresh fish, pasta, pizza, salads ... Octopus, squid)) wine and cocktails)) as well as toilets and cheap) there are shops with souvenirs, you can buy a swimsuit-Hat-pareo. If you suddenly lost in hotel))) to the beach can be reached via a scenic drive or take a funny cartoon steam train: 1.5 euros one way. Tavira by car 10 minutes. This little place called Santa Lusia de Tavira. And on or walk to the ocean or on the train.

  • This wonderful beach, was in a time frame of tuna, it is so special: the Anchors, then housing fishermen and their families, today there are bars and restaurants, has the train to make the route about a kilm to the beach! Wonderful!

  • Praia extensa e agradável. O comboio turístico é engraçado, mas o percurso a pé também é muito bom para observar a paisagem envolvente.
  • Didn't spend much time here but the landscape is amazing! The shrubbery is very wild and is actually untouched, it smells amazing walking through the marshy greenlands down to the beach. Unlike some beaches it is completely clean, no bottles or rubbish at all, though I waa only on one section of the beach. Its location is a little out of the way and I only visited by chance but if you are in this region its a must see.
  • One of my favorite beaches. Enjoy an experience of this beautiful and quiet beach. You have to cross a narrow bridge to reach a kind of stop of a tourist train that will take you to the beach. If you prefer to opt for non-payment can make the journey on foot, will take you about 10/15 minutes, depends on that you are charged. I recommend the trip by train, at least for the first leg, because it is worth. When you arrive you are with some areas of small shops, restaurants and an area of public baths which have up to showers. The spectacular beach. Clean, with big waves and warm water. Nothing jam-packed with people. Moreover, if you want to have the beach for you, just leave a little bit more than the entrance and ready.
