Cabanas is a small and pretty fishing village and is not overcrowded with tourists. It remains largely unspoilt and has a friendly, family atmosphere. The whole village can be leisurely strolled, from end to end, in around 30 minutes and has an excellent choice of restaurants, bars and cafes catering for all tastes - most of which are along the sea front capturing the day time sunshine. For smaller budgets and a taste of the real Algarve, there are also a number of traditional bars and Tascas serving typical Portuguese meals in the back streets at very reasonable prices! The village has 2 good supermarkets with a range of fresh produce and there is also a daily market, butchers and bakers. There are relatively few gifts shops, but in the height of summer, there are stalls selling handcrafted goods. Cabanas is not a destination for those seeking activity and night life - the atmosphere is generally relaxed and is perfect for socialising, relaxing and dining. Good bus/rail links.
Cabanas Beach Island: The Algarve is famous for its wonderful sandy shores! Cabanas beach Island is no exception and is reached by the Golden Clube's small private boats. Separated by an arm of the River Formosa the sands are golden and clean and offer good standards of bathing and sun worshipping. Directly adjacent is the new boating Marina where fishing boats are working and trips can be taken. Speed boat water taxis are also available from Cabanas Beach front which provide a great source of transportation to nearby beaches of which Tavira Island can be highly recommended for a Tropical Holiday adventure!
