Tavira Island is a sandy island about 11 km long, located along the Algarve coast, south of the city of Tavira, and is part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Its beaches are very frequented by tourists, especially during the bathing season; its high environmental quality is attested annually by the Blue Flag certification. The Ria Formosa marshes and small channels adjacent to the island are great places for the observation and study of sea birds.
As infrastructure to support tourism the island has a camping site and beach concessions during the bathing period. Access is via boats departing from Tavira or the quay of Quatro Águas, or on foot via a bridge located near the village of Pedras D`el Rei.
The island has four beaches. From east to west, we find Praia da Ilha de Tavira (or simply Tavira beach), followed by Terra Estreita beach, Barril beach and Homem Nu beach. At points on the island furthest from the beach concessions, naturism is tolerated; however, in the western region of Praia do Barril, naturism is legal.
