Photographer's Note

Not far from the lovely town of Tavira you can find an amazing 11 km long island, Ilha de Tavira, which has a beautiful long sandy beach on its all 11 kilometres. You can access the island with a passenger ferry from Quatro guas, southeast of Tavira. I read the beach is one of the best in Algarve so we really wanted to spend a day there. It was indeed a fantastic beach. Great quality clean sand and contrary to what you see in the photo, there were not so many people there as opposed to what we have experienced on the beach in Monte Gordo. I had a feeling that this was a secret of the local people. The waves were sometimes higher but since the beach was shallow for a while a lot of people, including families with children, enjoyed playing in the water. I took a lot of photos there but ironically only a couple of photos without my wife, so I dont have much to show. I wanted to share with you this amazing place because I think there are just few old photos from this beautiful place on TrekEarth.
