The local Camara (town council) organises a wide varirty of activities entertainments during the year -- street theatre and music; book fairs, antiques fairs; arts & crafts fairs; a film festival; visiting dance, theatre and music groups, etc.

The nearby beaches of Ilha da Tavira offer 13km of fine white strand -- and a remote nudist beach.

The Ria Formosa nature park surrounds Tavira. The Algarvean hills, while not officially a nature park, offer a further opportunity to commune with nature -- or just to wander.

The Guadiana Valley (the border between Spain and Portugal) with its many walled towns offers some excellent sightseeing -- you can also take a river cruise to see the towns. Tavira itself has many Moorish remains -- and, of course, a Roman Bridge still in everyday use.

Golf courses abound, there are five within 5 to 15 mins drive. The nearby Benamor course (3 miles) offers an excellent venue for lunch while the Quinta da Cima course is rated by those in the know as one of the best course in Portugal (Nº 1 in Portugal according to the authorative 2004 PEUGEOT Guide).

While there is a marked absence in Tavira of the disco bars which abound on the western side of the Algarve, there are two discos in town which are highly regarded by younger visitors -- they typically open at about midnight and close about six am!

And there is always the sun and the water sports if you run out of things to do!
