The Algarve region:
With its stunning coastline, excellent golf courses and pleasant year round climate, the Algarve's 200 kilometre stretch of southern shoreline has become one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Algarve is divided from the rest of Portugal by a series of low lying mountains. In the east, the Guadiana River forms a scenic border with neighbouring Spain.
There is a clear definition between the Western Algarve and the East. Whilst the West shows more development towards tourism, the Eastern Algarve and its tidal marshlands still have a tranquil beauty, and the small resorts along the coast have retained much of their character, looking today as they must have looked long ago. Here, tourism blends in perfectly with local activities creating a relaxed way of life. The ferry boat trips to the beach islands provide visitors with superb, less crowded beaches.
The sea water temperature is around 14c in January and reaches a high 22c in August. The temperatures of the region are around 15c in January and up to 28c or more in July and August. The Algarve can also count on around 3.000 hours of sun during the year which makes it a favourite destination for those who enjoy a sunny climate.
Cabanas is situated some 7km east of Tavira, at the beginning of the lagoons of the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve. Cabanas derived its name from the huts (cabanas) that were erected during the early 18th century by the tuna fishermen to store their fishing gear, they then eventually built houses for themselves and the fishing village of 'Cabanas de Tavira' was born. It remains largely unspoilt and has a friendly, family atmosphere. The whole village can be leisurely strolled, from end to end, in around 30 minutes and has an excellent choice of restaurants, bars and cafes catering for all tastes - most of which are along the sea front capturing the day time sunshine.
There are a number of traditional bars and Tascas serving typical Portuguese meals in the back streets. The village has two good supermarkets with a range of fresh produce and there is also a daily market, butchers and bakers. There are a few gifts shops and in the height of summer there are stalls selling handcrafted goods.
The atmosphere is generally relaxed and is perfect for socialising, relaxing and dining.
The village benefits from good bus and rail links.
Cabanas Beach Island:
The Algarve is famous for its sandy shores and Cabanas Beach Island is no exception! Separated by an arm of the River Formosa the sands are golden and clean and offer good standards of bathing and sun worshipping. There is a small range of amenities including a snack bar and sun beds and shades for hire.
The Island is reached by a small and inexpensive boat from a designated point on the sea front. Speed boat water taxis are also available providing a fun and exciting way to travel to nearby beaches - of which Tavira Island.
