We recently moved to Tavira which is very close to this attraction, that we found on Trip advisor. Unfortunately this is not what it was !! It was very difficult to find and you would need you own transport. Once found after driving round and...More

Wonderful oasis in the most unassuming of locations. We caught it empty on a clear and sunny day with plenty of water over the chute. Turquoise pool with crystal water and soft rock ledges shaded by the canopy and bamboo and viney roots clinging to...More

Absolutely gorgeous waterfall and lake to swim in. We got a taxi to and from the car park, and you just walk down the dirt track to find it. Takes about 10 minutes, kind of steep in some places, you'll have to help kids getting...More

I wonder what this place would be like if it was officially open! It was very busy when we went, but after following the dusty track (steep at times) we came to the lagoon. It was so crowded there was nowhere to sit so we...More
