Praia do Barril

This beach is only 5 - 10 minutes drive from Casa Verdazul. The beach also has blue flag status and is clean and safe. From the car park you have the chioce of walking for approximately 1 km or taking a little train which shuttles visitors back and forth the entire day. The kids love the novelty of the train.
The beach forms part of the long Ilha da Tavira and lies slightly to the west of Santa Luzia. For the more energetic or for runners, it is possible to reach the Tavira beach from Barril by heading east along the beach.
Praia da Barril used to be an active tuna fishing station. About 80 fishermen and their families used to live in this little village from April to September each year in very humble homes, without electricity or water supply. The anchors from the boats can still be seen lining the beach and the fishermen's homes have been converted into shops, restaurants and beach facilities. The beach is easily accessible by bicycle or hire car.
