Some of the best beaches of Portugal's famed Algarve region actually lie not on the mainland but on a series of narrow islands which lie just a short distance offshore. They run parallel to the coastline just east of Faro, the regional capital. One of these is Tavira Island, which is about 11 km (7 mi.) long and just 1 km (less than a mile) wide. In this video by contributor Aerodrone, you'll get a bird's eye view of Barril Beach, which lies on this tiny strip of paradise on the Atlantic Ocean inlet known as the Bay of Cadiz.
