Barril Beach

To say that Barril Beach is one of the best in Portugal is not an over exaggeration.This beach was the first beach we visited when we came to the Tavira area and the one closest to the Pedras d'el Rei resort.

What a delight. Some people like to just get out of their bed and walk down to the beach.

Barril beach doesn't fit the normal typr of beach location ideal. You can either walk or take the train. Yes a train to the beach! How wonderful. This beach is really an adventure.

Whatever way you choose, when you get to the beach it exudes relaxation. Enjoy a drink or a snack at the bars and restaurants. Have a look at the shops which in keeping with this beach are small and have utilised the old Tuna fishing village buildings.

This is a wonderful family beach. Space for the children to explore and enjoy the safe swimming on the Blue Flag beach. Cafes and bars to eat at and enjoy some of the delights of the Algarvian menus.

Even in the height of the season nothing seems too crowded, there is space for everyone.

The site has been developed from the original tuna fishing village situated here. Noted by the anchors pitched into the sand dunes behind the beach and the remnants of the tuna fishing boat at the entrance to resort.
