Ride by the Ria Formosa and go on a boat ride towards the Tavira Island to enjoy its deserted beaches.
The whitewashed houses and the fishermen’s villages, trademark of this region, are influenced by the Moorish heritage – this was the last region to be conquered, in the 13th century, by the Portuguese kings.
