I think that depends on what you plan to do once there. There is no beach actually in Cabanas. You have to take a little ferry across to the island, which sounds all very well but some of the resort complexes are a mile away, so check locations carefully.

Cabanas is a small place. There are restaurants, cafés and bars but it's a while since I have been there so I cannot really comment in detail. Likewise there are a couple of small supermarkets, but most people now drive to the recently built mall in Tavira, about 3 miles away.

Transfer from the airport would take about 40minutes if a private transfer, longer if it is a shared arrangement as you know everyone else would get dropped off before you.

It's a flat area, so no hills to worry about when walking.

There is a very irregular bus to Tavira for a bit of an excursion but that does not run at all on Saturday afternoons and Sundays. Taxis are available.

If you aren't planning to go visiting all over the Algarve, I think you could probably manage with no car.

Have a look at Cabanas Beach Apartments, Cabanas Gardens or Quinta Da Gomeira, all close to the village centre, and no busy roads to cross!. Also, the kids will love the little boat to the beach!

Try Cabanas......we love it.

Agreed. Golden Club may be a good vacation choice for you as it has a couple of outdoor swimming pools, one indoor pool, tennis court, and more. It has complimentary boat trips to the beach, only about 100m across but you do need it. It is also an enclosed Club so pretty safe too.

I have stayed at Golden Club as well as other places, and as you have children that would be a good choice. You don't say when you are going. We return 3 or 4 times a year and out of season car hire through Enjoy Car is very reasonable we find, cheaper than paying for transfers and much more convenient. Have a look at web sites like owners direct or holiday lettings for lots of choice for self catering holidays.

We have booked private accomodation at The Golden Clube for the past 4 years. Our three boys (under 10) love it there; very family friendly yet not "overpowering". Cabanas is a beautiful little village, lots of cafe bars and a fab ice-cream parlour which the boys made sure we visited every evening! Good taxi service from Golden Clube reception to Tavira, a town well worth a visit.

Hi Tomas, not too sure if you are allowed to advertise directly on the Forum, see community guidelines and judge for yourself, but had a look at your lovely apartment in Cabanas. Looks like its next door to Johns place, a wonderful central location. Not sure about all those steps up to the top floor. We visit Cabanas as often as we can, twice a year, low season, and have our accommodation secured for this year and next but who knows. Will send you A pm.
