The village Santa Luzia, was named 'Saint Lucy' following the recovery of a holy relic by a local fisherman, which had been lost out at sea during a storm.
This picturesque fishing village is idyllically situated close to Tavira and the beautiful beaches of Ilha de Tavira (Tavira Island) . The otherwise sleepy harbour comes alive each morning when the fish catches are brought ashore and sold in the local market.
The main attraction is the village itself; which remains authentic and untouched by the influences of tourism. The colourful fishing boats return early in the morning and this is the best time to visit the fish market, where the last night's catch is displayed and sold.
Santa Luzia is only 3km southwest of Tavira and can be reached easily along the Algarve Cycle Path, which is perfect for those wishing to explore at a leisurely pace.
The closest beach is Praia da Terra Estreita, which is accessible only by ferry ( 5/10 minutes) from the local fishing harbour. The frequency of ferry services is seasonal (regular departures take place from May until mid-September) but there are also water taxis for those who miss departures or are visiting in low season. An adult single ferry ride is € 1.50 and a return is € 2.00.
To the east of Praia da Terra Estreita is the Praia de Tavira; the most developed section of island, while to the west is the Barril beach and the Cemetery of Anchors. Both beaches can be reached on foot from Praia da Terra Estreita and takes around 30 minutes.
Local restaurants and bars/Cafes offers excellent value for money traditional gastronomy (fish and sea food).
The city of Tavira is the administrative center, with its civil services, local health center, shops, restaurants, bars, transports and schools.
