Tavira...Known as The Little Venice of Portugal lies 20 minutes west from the Spanish Boder...It is a picturesque town of cobble lock streets, wrought iron balconies and tiled facade buildings built on the River Gilao and spanned by its historic Roman Bridge. Tavira town has retained its charm of a traditional Portuguese fishing village bursting with old style character and romanticism. Taviras a long way from disco heaven and the best thing to do is follow the local lead. Go out late, eat and then stroll through the town, stopping off at any of the scores of tiny bars or classy pastelarias. The centre of Tavira radiates from the pedestrianised open air ampi theatre beside the town hall. Here Taviras council runs a series of nightly concerts throughout the summer featuring a broad range of music from jazz and baroque classical, you can sit and enjoy free local entertainment in the lazy summer evenings along with the local folk. Praca Dr Padinha (The Bishops Triangle) is fertile ground for late night drinks and people watching.
The Ilha de Tavira Beach can be reached by a short water-taxi or ferry from the pier down town. One of the best beaches along the entire coast, 7Kms of clean safe bathing complimented by a few cafes and bars, plenty of room to stretch out.
