Not the easiest place to find as there are no signposts. Only a 15 minute walk from the small parking areas. The path is is not the easiest to follow, and definitely not wheelchair friendly. A very popular swimming and picnic spot with locals. It...More

Wonderful oasis in the most unassuming of locations. We caught it empty on a clear and sunny day with plenty of water over the chute. Turquoise pool with crystal water and soft rock ledges shaded by the canopy and bamboo and viney roots clinging to...More

This is a gorgeous spot that's been allowed to go to rack and ruin. It appears the local council have abandoned it due to vandalism. Its still very popular if not a little awkward to find, follow the well worn worn tracks. Be careful however...More

I'm so happy I went to this place. Having chased 3 other waterfalls in the region, all of which almost broke the car trying to get to, and then had completely dried up (August 2017), seeing this place made my heart soar. Such a little...More

You reach this small waterfall and deep pool by taking M514-2 from Tavira. You follow the Gilão for some kilometes then turn right on a secundary road that leads to a carpark. There you have to walk, better said clamber, down a weed-choked path to...More

Absolutely gorgeous waterfall and lake to swim in. We got a taxi to and from the car park, and you just walk down the dirt track to find it. Takes about 10 minutes, kind of steep in some places, you'll have to help kids getting...More
