Tavira Sport seems to be a replica of what is going on in the rest of Portugal. Like most countries with a more sunnier climate than the rest there is an emphasis on outdoor pursuits. Unlike some that were influenced by the British Empire they do not specialise in the traditional sports played in those countries that have been. So Cricket and Rugby are not high on the list of sports played by the Portuguese.The influence of the expatriate Commonwealth countries is developing so that may not remain the case.

The main Tavira sport is Football. Although in the last few years this is more restricted to watching the game than playing it as the two main clubs in Tavira and Santa Luzia have ceased operating a Senior Football team.

Cycling is one area that Tavira excels in having one of the most successful professional cycling clubs in the country. Namely Carmim-Prio the new name for the Clube de Ciclismo de Tavira.
