Old Town Elegance to beach via a ferry

Tavira, certainly worth the visit. The old town is good to walk around, pleanty of restaurants, beach nearby. Plenty of tourists here yet pleasant enough and not too busy.

Tavira is about 30 mins drive east of Faro

    Your tips bring back memories of the time I went to Tavira on my bicycle in March 1963 & stayed for 2 nights. During the day it rained so I stayed indoors and a lovely lady tried to teach me how to paint with watercolors. I was not very talented, however.

    The town looks nice but the beach far too crowded. You don't say where in the Algarve this is.I don't know the area.
