Itinerary

Arrival at Faro and transfer to Tavira. This little coastal town has a very long and beautiful sandy beach to offer, the town centre is full of interesting buildings and is home of a fish market, which we highly recommend.

A comfortable walk along the coast, starting in the old village of Velha, takes you along deserted paths to the charming fishing village Cabanas. There fishing is still in full swing and an ideal lunch place to enjoy observing the busy life on the water. Through several salt pans, in which numerous wild animals dwell, you walk back to Tavira.
