Tavira, is known “The Little Venice of Portugal” and in the 1500s was a port of great strategic importance. The town rests either side of the river with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants along the beautifully cobbled streets. Locally caught fresh fish, grilled on an open fire the traditional way, is an obvious choice in any of the many restaurants combined with the red wines of the region.
Cabanas is also only a 20 minute drive from the Portuguese/Spanish borders and you can drive across the magnificent suspension bridge across the River Guadiana to view a traditional part of Spain where many Spanish choose for their holidays.
