Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The coastal towns of the eastern Algarve are 'real' towns, far more under-developed than those in the Central and Western area of the Algarve.If you are after a more relaxed style of holiday, away from the hordes of tourists and water parks, then the Eastern Algarve may be the place for you. Why is it so undeveloped? The reason for this is probably because the towns along the coast are not generally right on the sea. They are separated from the Atlantic by salt-pans, marshland and lagoons. These form part of the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve which stretches from just south of Faro along the coast to the town of Vila Nova de Cacela, a few kilometres west of the Rio Guadiana river on the Spanish border.The headquarters of the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve at Quinta Marim is worth a visit. The beaches you'll find along the coast are to be found on long sandy islands and outcrops. One of my favorites is Barril Beach on the Ilha de Tavira. Because of this, little development of hotels has been possible, and should therefore keep the area quieter than other areas in the Algarve.The wetlands of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve make this area of coastline, wild and interesting, in contrast to the red sandstone cliffs of the central Algarve and the rugged coastline in the west.Further inland, the area is completely undeveloped. Small rustic villages nestle in the remote countryside. You'll find the local inhabitants going about their daily business, the same today as they did many generations before.About 10 km north of Faro is the quiet and historic town of Estoi, famous for its pink palace and Roman Ruins. Carrying on a few kilometres into the hills, is the old cork capital, Sao Bras de Alportel. Leaving Faro in an easterly direction along the N125, the first town you come to is the fishing port of Olhao . Well worth a visit, particularly for the large fish market down by the sea front. 8km northeast of Olhao is the rural village of Moncarapacho. Leaving Olhao and continuing east along the N125 for about 23km, you'll see Tavira signposted. This is a charming and unspoiled town, with narrow cobbled streets, straddling both sides of the River Gilao. If you like churches, then you won't be disappointed as there are plenty to explore. About 17km east from Tavira, is the Eastern Algarve's only real tourist resort, Monte Gordo. Being beyond the Ria Formosa reserve, it lies on the coast, with some beautiful beaches. You'll find more high rise apartments here than in other towns, and in the summer plenty of Spanish holiday makers (no doubt attracted by the cheaper prices here). A few kilometres to the west of Monte Gordo, on the coast is the small purpose built resort of Altura, which is a peaceful and relaxing place to unwind, although you shouldn't expect much more from it than that.

Cabanas

Cabanas is a quaint, unspoilt village. It hosts a local market, banks, cafes and restaurants and some small bars. Apart from Cabanas beach you should visit Praia do Barril, Fabrica, Praia Verde, Cabeca,or Quatro Aquas which all short drives away. On the other side of the main A road you have a National Park. If you fancy something more historical you can visit V. Nova de Cacela which is a picturesque hill top village. Another place is Castro Marim which has an imposing hill top castle.There are some fabulous championship golf courses within close proximity such as Quinta de Cima, Monte Rei North to name but a few. If you prefer something more local you can visit Benamor Golf Resort a few minutes drive away (18 holes, par 71).
