“Beautiful beach and very relaxing day”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

We booked a day trip to Tavira beach through our hotel (the Porta Nova) and thought it great value at €43 for return water taxi, welcome drink, sunloungers, parasols and beach massage for two people. The beach is huge with miles of white sand And breakers crying out to be surfed on. There were plenty of places to get food or drinks, all seemed good value and the food we had, at the Sail Bar. was certainly very tasty and good value. We will be back

“A fantastic 2 hours even when there were no birds there was lost to learn about the history of Tavira”
Reviewed 23 June 2010

I a two hour bird watching tour on the Ria Formosa. I booked the tour with Pedro at the local agents in Tavira called "Days out". His English was excellent and he was very very helpful. I am personally not a bird watching fan and had booked the trip as a treat for my sister and brother-in-law, however I was not disappointed either. It was very informative and I too saw interesting birds was gently being sailed around the Formosa. When there were no birds to be spotted our guide was extremely informative about the ecology of the Formosa and the history of the islands and Tavira. Well worth every minute.
