"A great new addition to our programme"
Ria Formosa will appeal to many winter sun campers looking for a relaxing stay on Portugal’s much loved Algarve coast. The owner Fernando Rocio, himself a keen and committed motorcaravanner of many years standing, has created the kind of site he would like to stay on, with good quality facilities and much care taken over laying down the pitch bases and surfaces. The friendly site team is always there to help, and English is spoken in reception. Pitches are small, so the pitch fees below comprise two adjacent pitches, with both 70m² and 80m² options available. This special arrangement for members also makes the standard long stay price excellent value for money.
In a great location, just half a mile from the Algarve’s main N125 trunk road and a golf course, Ria Formosa is also under a mile from the sea front, and a quarter of a mile from both the local bus stop and a train station serving the main Algarve coast railway. Cabanas de Tavira’s sea front is in two parts – first the pleasant promenade, with bars and restaurants, next to the lagoon formed by the barrier island; then the beach on the barrier island itself, reached by boat (for a small charge) across the lagoon.
Meanwhile, just near the train station you can join the narrow lanes and cycle ways that take you via the local salt pans, with all their bird life, to Tavira itself. This ancient town is well worth a visit, especially the old castle and church that sit on a hill overlooking the Formosa river that flows through the town. Just a little further along the coast is the Ria Formosa Natural Park, a popular attraction for visitors to the region, as are many of the Algarve’s lovely beaches.
