Of course you do! So this is the place for you. Miles of soft sand and lots of space to find your own spot. Big waves too, if you like a bit of body-surfing.

We are a little spoiled coming from Australia where we have amazing beaches so this no doubt influenced our perceptions. We were grateful it is early in the season as full of tourists the beach could be a little crowded. There is also an extensive...More

Excellent trip organized with lunch. Guide friendly and professional, lunch at his fisherman’s father’s home and prepared by his mother. Delicious homemade food and local wine.

Fantastic island and great walk on the beach, flip flop recommended! Sunset it’s a very romantic place on it, ferry is every 60 mins and it’s only 2 km walking from town center. Do it!

I imagine in the high season it will be rammed with sun creamed bodies competing for a scrap of sand, with a sun tan oil slick drifting out to sea. However, at this time of year, 27 degrees with a cooling westerly and few people...More

An island beach with with golden sands and very long (on the south side). Catch the ferry from Tavira town on the estuary, a 15 minute trip that's all it takes. Bars and restaurants are open until late. Check the ferry times for your return....More
