Vast stretches of white and golden sands, classical South Iberian and Moorish houses, and a wide range of traditional taverns make Tavira Island an idyllic way to experience the many colors of Portugal. Accessible by ferry or water taxi, the 11 km (6.8 mi) long island shelters exotic flora and curious birds, including the seasonal flamingo. You can walk for hours through its dunes and marshes. Stake out a place at one of the campsites, go swimming and soak in some sun, or have a stroll through the island's charming narrow streets. You can stop for a bite at a traditional restaurant. Make Tavira Island a centerpiece of your Tavira vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Tavira trip itinerary planning website.
