Top Portugal beach  in the world

Tavira Island is in the top 10 list of best beach holidays for families in the world.

Lonely Planet’s guide Travel with children names its top sands for family fun and among beaches in Mexico, Thailand and Indonesia, readers find Tavira described as a “quiet town” with a “magnificent untamed beach that goes on for miles”.

In a statement from Tavira Câmara, a spokesman said: “This news makes us Tavirenses feel very proud and this is certainly good news for the region’s tourism industry.”

Other listed beaches include Costa Del Sud, Sardinia, Italy, Cottesloe, Australia, Durban, South Africa, Sayulita, Mexico and Sanur, Bali, Indonesia.
