This is how the Rough Guide to Portugal describes Cabanas -

6km East of Tavira - past the golf course at Benamor - lies Cabanas, with a kernel of backstreets made up of pretty fishermen's houses and a line of low rise shops, cafes and bars facing a picturesque river estuary.

It is a quiet resort perfect for relaxing, drinking and eating great food, cacthing some sun on the beach or at the pool

The Algarve region

The Algarve is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations renowned for glorious year round sunshine (more than California) and its wonderful, seemingly endless coastline that cater for all holiday makers... with every watersport available. Inland you will find quaint villages barely touched by tourism with their rich heritage and history.

Portugal is also reknowned for its food especially seafood and soups

It is easy to reach via Faro airport and driving is straightforward - the motorway is pretty empty - it takes about 30 minutes

For those who want to combine a bit of history with the great weather, Tavira is just 10 minutes by car or bus and it is great to wander around its cobbled streets, castle and Roman bridge

Further afield, Seville is just 90 minutes drive with stunning Morrish architecture including the Cathedral, Giralda and Plaza d'Espana

Cabanas de Tavira

Cabanas de Tavira, formerly a fishing village, has become a popular tourist destination in the summer due to its fantastic beach, Ilha de Cabanas, which is found just offshore. It is also a great place to go scuba diving (some say that it is one of the best areas in the world) and there is a dive school for those first timers.

In addition there are a number of prestigious golf courses such as Benamor, Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria, well known for their stunning views are only 5 minutes away.

The apartment is located 400m from the sea front at Cabanas, an excellent beach with fine golden sand and clean water which has toilets, showers, parasols and beds for hire plus a cafe. It is also possible to learn to wind surf or kite surf at Cabanas

There are a number of very good restaurants in Cabanas and Tavira that are close by, a good cafe and restaurant within 100m.Shopping facilities include supermarkets with in store bakeries and an ATM within a short walk.

Cabanas Island is where the fabulous beach is. Note that boats only run Easter to October but you can hire a water taxi outside of this time

There are also small villages near by that you can visit for sightseeing. In Luz de Tavira, you will find some of the best examples of Manueline craftsmanship, and Pousada of Santa Cruz which is located on the site of an old fort.

"Well equipped, cosy flat in an ideal location"

This flat has a lot going for it and we would be happy to recommend it to friends and family.
We particularly liked the fact that throughout it is so well equipped - the kitchen has all the extras you would have at home; the lounge has a great selection of games, books and DVDs for all ages (NB: the TV is on the small side and has local channels only); and the collection of beach items is extensive. We were two adults and it was perfect for us. It is also ideal for kids (this is a ground floor flat). Bedroom was comfortable and quiet.
The only slight drawback is that the balcony is a small narrow one with only room for a table and two seats - so don't expect to have four adults out there!
The location is ideal - in a quiet pedestrian-only street with a cafe & bistro around the corner but no noise. Parking is easy in the local streets (no problems even in the high of summer). The flat is part of complex which is modern and smart with 4 pools located within an easy walk (although at least one road has to be crossed to reach them).
The promenade and supermarkets are all just a few minutes walk away - very easy to access and come home for a rest.
Overall, this apartment is a lovely, home from home place with an owner who is easy to deal with and we look forward to returning in the future.
