Nice spot but prices are high for the area as it has a monopoly position. Service can be a little slow too.

We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of Barril Beach recently. The walk out from San ta Luzia is about 3 km, well worth the effort. We had lunch in the sun (bit of a cold breeze though ) and strolled back at our leisure. A train also runs part of the way if you prefer to park close to the... More

The walk over to the beach (from Pedras d'el Rei) is wonderful. If you're feeling lazy there's a little train. The beach is wonderful. Space, air, waves, freedom....all you need.

Nice beach! Love waking here in the autumn and winter when the beach is almost empty. If your a Swedish Viking you can enjoy a swim in the ocean during the winter too.

Boxing Day 2016 - a walk on the beach. WOW, just perfect. Lovely sunshine, great walk and a lovely coffee afterwards. The train runs all year round, but we did the walk. Highly recommend.

Backed by a cafe that gives attentive service, visitors walk past giant anchors, limited to anchoring the sand from wind movement, to reach a gloriously empty beach that stretches in both directions. This is not to be missed if you are visiting the area and the walk or train ride to reach the beach is a fun activity, particularly loved... More

We live in Tavira and this is one of the beaches we take visitors to. Lovely unspoilt beach and not too crowded. After a great walk through the pine forest and over the waterway 20 mins or you can take the little train, good for small children. There is a fabulous cafe that is open everyday except Xmas day. We... More
