Holidays to Tavira
Incredible nature, historic buildings, and unspoilt beaches are all reasons why Tavira, in the east of the Algarve, is such a popular holiday destination for all types of travellers. Tavira began many centuries ago as a small fishing village, and today it is easy to feel like you have stepped into an idyllic coastal hamlet, where time moves slower and stress is a distant memory. This is the ideal holiday spot for those who want to relax and take in some fresh air and scenery.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Tavira
One of the reasons that many people are compelled to come on a holiday to Tavira is its rich history. The town was once home to the Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, and Christians, and their legacy still lives on in the archaeological sites and historic buildings scattered throughout Tavira.
A meander through the winding cobblestone streets here will reveal medieval churches and residences, a Roman bridge, and the ruins of a Moorish castle on the top of a hill high above the rooftops of the town.
Tavira enjoys an ideal location beside the beautiful Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, which is essentially a nature lover’s dream. This protected park is a nesting ground for many different types of birds from all over Africa and Europe, as well as bats, reptiles, and small mammals. Visitors here can walk around the sand dunes, lagoons, marshes, and tall grasses to catch glimpses of these fascinating creatures.
Another unique aspect of Tavira is that the beach here is actually a large sand bar that can be reached by ferry. The Ilha de Tavira is a one-kilometre stretch of beach that offers plenty of soft white sand and glassy calm waters that are perfect for children or those who want to take leisurely swims in the warm waters. Many of the beaches to the east and west of Tavira are also prime sun worshipping destinations for their blissfully uncrowded sands and Blue Flag status for cleanliness.
