“Nice, deserted beach.”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Very long and deserted beach. Naturist friendly. The only way to get there is by ferry from either Tavira or Santa Luzia. Santa Luzia ferry is cheaper.

“Picture this: Golden sands, blue waters & yellow flowers!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

We took the boat from Santa Luzia to reach this island.. As you walk towards the beach on the raised wooden bridge,you see small sand dunes with lovely yellow flowers! Such a lovely sight..
The beach is FABULOUS and a must-visit. It was a little windy the day we visited, but the water was calm and inviting..

“Tavira's best beach”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Terra Estreita Beach is a jewel, embracing the ocean with all the splendor of its golden-white sands. It rarely gets as crowded as other beaches in the Algarve during August/July, and is absolutely enjoyable with a certain sense of temperance and calm for the remainder of the year.

You should get there by boat from Santa Luzia, and enjoy yourself a small trip in the Ria Formosa. It is marvelously beautiful.

“Best Beach in Tavira?”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I wish people would stop giving this beach such rave reviews!! It is supposed to be a secret!! Such space abounds this wonderful 'Blue Flag' beach and we really love the experience of getting there. We usually take the ferry from Santa Luzia which meanders along the Ria Formosa lagoon in an easterly direction. Once at the beach jetty there is a short walk and you are there. There are beach loungers to hire and a small bar that serves drinks and snacks and not a great deal else. Perfect for that quiet day lounging on the beach enjoying the beautiful sea.

“Perfect Beach”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

A wonderful beach of magnificent white sand and warm sea. Not too much crowded, maybe because you can only reach it by boat.
