Because Tavira’s beaches are on small islands of the protected Ria Formosa Natural Park, they don’t have any hotels. However, there’s accommodation close to the piers for the boats that take you there. Below is where you should book if you’re looking for a beach holiday in Tavira.
- Vila Gale Albacora
- Pedras da Rainha
- Residencial Mares
- Apartamentos da Cidade
- Pedras d’el Rei
This is the hotel with the most direct access to the beach. It’s located right by the Ria Formosa Natural Park, and has its own pier with boats taking guests to Ilha de Tavira. It occupies the site of a former fishing community, and has a small museum showing what life was like in the old days. It maintains the old chapel, which is still used for weddings, and the former school is now a kids’ club. There’s a total of 161 rooms, and other facilities include a restaurant of Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine, a spa with an indoor pool, and a large outdoor pool.
