International sports meeting in Tavira

TAVIRA ISLAND will be hosting its eighth Sports Island event between March 19 and 22, where people from around the world meet to take part in earth, wind and water sports as well as competitions and workshops.

There are 33 activities on offer this year, including beach football, kite surfing, paintballing, yoga and massage. When the final master classes of each day end around 6pm, an all night party will be held inside the main tent within the camp site with music and a 12-metre bar.

Around 3,500 people from countries including Germany, Brazil, France, Chile and Italy, took part in last year’s event, when more than 30 sports were available for participants.

Participants must register online to take part in the event. Registration costs 75 euros, which covers the cost of sports activities, a pitch for a tent at the campsite, entry to the evening parties, a t-shirt and other promotional gifts.
