There are south facing balconies on each floor with impressive sea views. Sandy beaches are only 2 minutes walk away and numerous affordable restaurants and coffee bars line the waterfront. Benamor golf course is less than 2km away and several other courses are within easy reach. Cabanas is a fishing village catering for a wide variety of outdoor interests - tennis, fishing, cycling, bird watching, walking, kite surfing and water sports.
