Salt Pans to Quatro Águas information

Lonely Planet review

You can walk 2km east along the river, past the fascinating, snowlike salt pans to Quatro Águas. The salt pans produce tip-top table salt and attract feeding birds in summer, including flamingos. As well as being the jumping-off point for Ilha de Tavira, the seaside hub of Quatro Águas has a couple of seafood restaurants and Arraial Ferreira Neto Museum, a former tuna-canning village. A bus goes to Quatro Águas from the Tavira bus station from July to mid-September (eight daily). A taxi to Quatro Águas costs around €5.
