Myself and my wife visited Cabanas in September with our 2 year old son and we absolutely fell in love with the area and the town itself.
Cabanas is very quaint and traditional with some lovely shops, cafes and bars. The restaurants are fantastic, all serving amazing seafood and traditional Portuguese dishes all at a very reasonable price. They were great with our son and would create dishes to suit him if needs be including home made fish fingers!
One of Cabanas' main enduring points for us was the people and how friendly they are. We can't wait to return to see again some of the friends we made in the restaurants and cafes.
The beach at Cabanas (and surrounding areas) is stunning and the short boat ride to get across the lagoon was like a mini adventure for us and our son each time we went. It can be quite windy on the beach and there is little shelter apart from the rented umbrellas so if you have little ones I would recommend a windbreak for some shelter. The beach though is spotless and perfect for building sand castles!
The apartment was perfect and catered for all our needs. The layout is spacious, modern and furnished to a high standard with all modern ammenities. It has a lovely patio area where you can relax, eat and have a drink in the evening. The Beach Club complex itself felt very secure and was lovely and quiet in the day and evening. The swimming pool naturally had a lot of use from us and it was great for our son to swim in daily. He is a confident swimmer even at 2 years old but the shallow end is perfect for little ones to splash and play in. There are plenty of sunbeds available and best of all it is only a 30 second walk from the apartment's patio doors.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Cabanas. It is a family friendly town with lovely people and the apartment was in a great location for exploring and walking into the town. We are really looking forward to returning soon.
