Ocean View is located just two minutes walk from the traffic free esplanade.Beach lovers take a two minute ferry ride to the fabulous sandy beach, which has all the facilities you could want. Quiet and peaceful the apartment has easy access to all amenities, including the local market and shops, and many excellent local restaurants for eating out. Cabanas is still very much a quaint local small town, but is only 10 minutes from the larger town of Tavira.

We enjoy an outdoor pool which is 10m x 6m with a depth of 0.85m to 1.75m, benefitting from full sunshine throughout the day. Plenty of sun-loungers available around the pool.

The apartment balcony provides stunning views of the sea and sunrises, whilst sunsets can be enjoyed from the roof terrace. The balcony has the benefit of an automatically retractable awning, and is furnished with a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco.

With two bedrooms that can be either twins or doubles, the apartment is ideal for families wanting to relax, walk, cycle, swim, or 4 golfers wanting to test their skills on beautiful but testing courses.

The Algarve region

The Algarve is Portugal's most popular tourist region, for its beautiful beaches and warm waters, heated by the Gulf Stream. But while most people coming to the Algarve get off the plane at Faro and head for the spectacular bays and coves to the west, the long, sandy beaches to the east are much less well known.

This coastline falls within the Ria Formosa National Park, of great interest to nature-lovers, especially bird watchers. (It bears many similarities to its neighbour over the border in Spain, the famous Coto Doñana.) This means development has been limited and crowds are easy to avoid. The estuary of the Formosa forms a series of islands, ilhas (Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira), essentially sand-spits with long, dune-backed beaches, behind which form mud flats, lagoons and salt marshes.

The best place to use as a base for exploring the area is the town of Cabanas, a traditional working town. Stroll around, try the local speciality (fresh tuna with onion) or a cataplana, have a drink or two.Nearby the town of Tavira has a nice ruined castle, and twenty-one churches. Most of these are not in use or only used on occasional days of the year, but can be visited if you ask around.

Car rental is your best bet for moving around, locally or further afield. Buses are reasonable, but infrequent, though CP, the Portuguese railway company, is quite convenient, whether you are heading west towards Faro or east towards Vila Real de San Antonio, on the border with Spain.

The sister ilhas of Armona and Culatra, the charming hamlet of Luz de Tavira, and Santa Lucia, an octopus-fishing village, are all nearby and worth visiting.

Costa de Cabanas

Cabanas is in an area of natural beauty. The whole seafront / coastline from west of Tavira down to the spanish border (Monte Gorde) is a designated area of natural beauty within the Ria Formosa natural park. This is excellent for long walks on beautiful sand, but not for small children. Cabanas beach is a 2 minute ferry ride across the estuary - 1euro per person each way ! and excellent for small children.The beach has beautiful sand, sunbeds, parasols, great swimming, proper toilet facilities, drink/snack facilities.

The town remains a quiet, local place, with lots of small, family owned shops, cafes, bars, restaurants. The pace of life is generally slow, nothing happens in a hurry ! A game of 'boule' can take a whole afternoon !!

The whole area surrounding Cabanas is a golfers' delight ! there are 50+ courses within an hours drive. Information about all the local markets etc is in the Clients Information Folder on the coffee table !

"Great location for exploring Cabanas"

We booked this apartment to use as a base for exploring Cabanas and the surrounding areas, and it proved to be ideal for that purpose. Getting to the place from Faro Airport was easy, and there was plenty of parking space available. Check-in was simple and the apartment was clean and tidy on arrival, with everything we needed for our stay. It was a bonus to find that the apartment had Sky TV available, (even though we did not take our own Sky Card), and that Wi-Fi was also available. Only two downsides, (both of which were external issues): (a) the elevators did not work and this might be a issue for older people (b) there are only a limited number of sunbeds around the pool Other than this, we really enjoyed our time in Cabanas and will definitely return.

"A beautiful apartment close to local restaurents"

The apartment is very very clean, modern and ideally placed for us. We have a young son, and the apartment was ideally placed for us to eat, then get back without the use of a car in the evenings. The pool was excellent, and the beach was a relatively short walk and fun boat trip away. The balcony (both main and roof) where spacious as was the apartment in general. We would definitely recommend it.

"Beautiful apartment in a lovely location."

A fantastically well presented spacious apartment set in a truly lovely well maintained complex, far better than some 5* hotels I have stayed in. The balcony has a built in barbecue which makes for a lovely evening meal, and the sun terrace is perfect too. Very spacious apartment with everything you'd need to make it a home from home (but with much better weather!) for a fortnight away. The local town is idillic too, and the golf in the area is second to none.
