It is a beautiful place, but you should be careful not to slip around the area. Those who like adventure can take some sort of footwear to climb and walk the higher areas where the view is also great and you can jump from specific...More

Really nice spot for a swim - it apparently gets busy in Summer but when we went in May it was empty. I've attached a map for how to get there from the car park.

Good for an hour or a 2 hour visit. The swinging rope is good but suitable for children over 10. Younger children can jump off of the rocks. There’s a waterfall there that you can swim over to. It’s in a nice location and would...More

I remember seeing this with my parents in the early to mid 00s. Went back today with my children and I was shocked at what a once beautiful illustration of nature had become. Overgrown foliage everywhere making it a brutal challenge to get to. Overhanging...More

I’m not sure for Spring. I can’t see it being any better as the surrounding area is overgrown and dangerous with human waste littering the walk to the waterfall. It’s a shame this place since the fire has been neglected. I... More

Sadly not. Public transport in the Tavira area is almost non existent... My tip is to ask a local and pay him/her a couple of Euros.
