The Algarve region
Besides Tavira, the nearest town on the banks of the river Gilão which offers many places of historic interest and about 30 churches, other nearby places of interest are Olhão which is still known for its octopus fishing, Estoi with the now renovated palace, Castro Marim and many more. Life and shopping in Ayamonte (Spain) just across the border, offers a different aspect of life.
The mild climate in the winter makes it appealing for those wanting to avoid the long, cold winter months in other parts of Europe. The almond blossoms are in full bloom in January and February. The warmest months are July and August and the water temperature is warmer than most other parts of the Algarve. There are many other beaches which can be driven up to.
Besides wine and fish specialities, Portugal is noted for its cork, wicker and ceramics. For the sports interested: Golf, horse-riding, watersports, tennis, fishing, bird-watching, lawn bowling etc. are all offered in close vicinity.
Cabanas de Tavira
Cabanas is an old fishing village, which celebrates many festivals such as St. John's day in June, the sea-food festival in August and smaller other fairs and markets during the year.
A 10-minute walk to the "Salinas" (salt-pans) over the newly constructed wooden bridge makes it worthwhile for bird watching and offers various species of birds such as flamingos, ducks, spoon-bills, whoopoes, comrons, herons, black-tailed godwits, blackwinged stilts, aversets etc. The harvesting of salt mid-August is a technique in itself. Great for nordic-walking.
