Between Praia da Ilha de Tavira and Praia do Barril in Tavira island narrows, resulting in a strip of sand about 50 yards wide, called Praia da Terra Estreita. It is from the picturesque fishing village of Santa Luzia where boats leave to cross to the island.

I was very impressed with this beach. The ferry is actually efficiently run even though you might not think so at first if you see the queue. But it moves quickly- we visited 6 times. The bar prices are very reasonable and the staff are...More

Short inexpensive ferry ride across from Santa Luzia. Beautiful clear waters with minimal seaweed. Beach is quiet if you walk 5-10mins along. There are toilets and a small bar available. Our favourite beach in the area!

This is a pretty white sanded beach accessed by ferry boat from Santa Luzia. There are sun loungers and parasols for hire $20 a day and you can also buy drinks and sandwiches from a small bar. Very relaxing and fairly peaceful end of september

If you have the patience to queue in line for the ferry and for the trip across the lagoon, you'll be rewarded. Beautiful beach, with some shallow water for the smaller kids and crystalline water. There's a bar and straw parasols for hire plus lots...More

My favorite beach, if you consider Ilha de Tavira, Terra Estreita and Barril. Quiet small beach, supported by a small bar, but you can enjoy tranquility and walk along the three beaches easily. Of course its personal, but I like the quiet way! Go!

If you are searching a quiet beach in Algarve in August this might be your best choice. Santa Luzia is a small town and the infrastructures for access to this beach are recent and thereby relatively unknown to most turists. That is visible as you...More
