A walk across mudflats following the tracks of a miniature train (that runs daily in high season) gave us the spooky surprise of a graveyard of huge rusting anchors wedged into the dunes, particularly atmospheric at dusk when we arrived. Beautiful quiet beach sheltered by the dunes and calm warm summer water. An Algarve find that stayed with us.
Access to the beach is a walk (or train trundle) across the Ria Formosa nature reserve, car park and bus stop at Pedras d'El Rei, 4 km from Tavira.
